A cleanup operation closed the Snowy Mountains Hwy north of Nimmitabel last Wednesday, September 5, after a truck rolled, spilling diesel across the road.

Police and emergency services were alerted to the crash at Rock Flat just before 8am, with the highway closed in both directions for several hours.

By 1.50pm the highway had been reopened, but with a reduced 40kmh speed limit for additional safety for motorists. 

No-one was seriously injured in the crash.
