ONE lane of the Dawson Highway east of Biloela has been re-opened to traffic following a fuel spill on Monday afternoon.
A police spokesperson said the highway was closedon Monday afternoon after a "tanker-worth" of diesel covered 2.5km of the highway.
Preliminary information suggests around 4.30pm, a truck transporting a bulldozer and a fuel tanker collided, causing the diesel to spill.
The blade of the dozer ripped a long hole in the tanker as the two vehicles passed on the highway.
Due to the extent of the spillage, the highway was closed roughly 20 kilometres east of Biloela.
No one is believed to have been injured in the incident.
Crew worked through the night to clean up the spill and the highway is partially re-opened under the guidance of traffic controllers.
