Queensland Rail (QR) has been fined almost $800,000 over the deaths of two workers in central Queensland in 2007.
QR employees Jamie Adams and Gary Watkins were killed in December 2007 near Mindi, west of Mackay, when they were struck by a track machine while working on the line.
In the Industrial Magistrates court in Mackay, QR pleaded guilty to one charge of failing to discharge its workplace health and safety obligations.
The company had previously been facing three charges over the incident, and a charge against executive general manager Glen Mullins was dropped earlier this month.
QR has been ordered to pay $650,000 in fines as well as more than $130,000 in legal and investigative costs.
A conviction was recorded.
