EIGHT jobs will be cut from the Emerald Department of Transport and Main Roads office with the State Government declaring the remaining 32 staff would be able to meet the region's roads infrastructure needs.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said yesterday the statewide review was nearing completion and the proposed reform of the Emerald office would not jeopardise the delivery of services throughout the Central Highlands and west.
"The Emerald TMR office currently has 40 staff and in line with the restructure, there will be an estimated reduction of up to eight staff," Mr Emerson said.
"Specifically in the Emerald area, there will be no changes to customer service and call centres.
"Discussions with staff will continue to provide certainty as quickly as possible as this process unfolds.
"Under the current proposed reform, the Emerald TMR office will continue to deliver services as part of the central Queensland region."
Details of the proposed reform have not yet been released.
