Workplace health and safety charges against one of Queensland Rail's (QR) highest ranking officials have been dropped.
QR executive general manager Glen Mullins was facing one charge of failing to discharge a safe workplace after the death of two rail workers west of Mackay, in the state's north, in 2007.
Jamie Adams and Gary Watkins were killed when they were struck by a track machine while working on the line at Mindi.
Both QR and Mr Mullins were facing charges of failing to provide a safe workplace, but the charges against Mr Mullins were withdrawn in the Mackay Industrial Magistrates Court yesterday.
Mr Mullins was stood aside from his duties after being charged last year, but a spokesman for QR says no decision has been made about reinstating him.
QR will appear in court on its charges later this month.
