Rubbish bins are back at Brisbane’s Central train station, more than two years after they were removed in response to the country’s terrorism threat level.

All CBD stations between Bowen Hills and South Brisbane, as well as the station at Toowong, have been without bins since the 2014 G20 summit, hosted in Brisbane, when they were welded shut before they were eventually removed.

The move was in response to Australia’s terrorism threat level being raised to “above moderate”.

A Queensland Rail spokesman said six clear bins, similar to ones seen at Sydney and Melbourne train stations, were installed on the concourse of Central station on Thursday evening.

He said they planned to roll them out to other inner-city stations in the first half of 2017.

“We are confident that these new bins will enhance convenience for our customers and staff,” he said.

Transport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said he had previously promised to bring the bins back by the end of 2016.

“It’s something that has been raised with me by commuters on numerous occasions since becoming Transport Minister.

“We do need to remain vigilant, there’s no doubting that, but the six clear bins that I have asked Queensland Rail to install at Central, combined with existing CCTV coverage, strike a sensible balance for the convenience of residents and visitors using the CityTrain network.”
