Transport Minister Scott Emerson has revealed another 500 jobs will go at Queensland Rail, which is on top of 14,000 public service job cuts.
Treasurer Tim Nicholls handed down the Liberal National Party (LNP) Government's first state budget in Parliament this afternoon.
The budget papers revealed the Queensland public service will reduce in size this financial year by around 14,000 full-time equivalent positions.
However, Mr Emerson says 500 jobs will also be cut from Queensland Rail.
He says the Queensland Rail job cuts will be achieved through voluntary redundancies and fewer contractors.
Mr Emerson says executive and general manager positions will drop from 77 to 32.
