THE State Government has denied rumours it is planning significant cutbacks to some Sunshine Coast railway stations.
The Sunshine Coast Daily received reliable information that there were plans to reduce the staff hours at the Nambour station so that it would no longer be open 24 hours a day.
It was also suggested all the intermediate stations on the Sunshine Coast, except Landsborough, would be closed on weekends.
However, Transport Minister Scott Emerson denied the claims.
A spokesman said the stations would remain unchanged.
"Caboolture, Petrie and Nambour stations are staffed 24 hours a day and there are no plans to close these stations for any part of the day," the spokesman said.
"In fact we have also promised to double the number of senior network officers providing safety and security across south-east Queensland.
"Police, transit officers, senior network officers and security guards, including 11 mobile dog patrol teams, operate across the rail network, including on the Sunshine Coast line.
"This is in addition to more than 8000 CCTV cameras and emergency phones."
