A few Melbourne train stations have been making announcements in another language leaving some commuters confused.
On Friday, video emerged of commuters leaving trains at Southern Cross Station in the CBD while announcements were made over the loudspeakers in Mandarin.
“Why are announcements at Southern Cross station being made in Chinese? Are we supposed to learn the language?” one person tweeted.

The message can be heard at commuter peak hour.
The Chinese New Year is a 15-day festival that celebrates the start of the lunar calendar across Asia.
