A traffic controller has been killed in a suspected hit and run involving a stolen car as a manhunt is launched to find the driver.

A 30-year-old road worker was killed when a car allegedly ploughed into him while stationed on the Bruce Highway in Mackay, Queensland on Tuesday morning.

Witnesses performed CPR on the man and emergency services were called to the scene on Ron Camm Bridge but he was unable to be saved.

The car allegedly involved in the incident was found 10 kilometres away but the driver was nowhere to be seen.

Police have deployed a team including sniffer dogs to search for the driver of the vehicle after it was left abandoned.  

The north lane of the Bruce Highway on the Ron Camm Bridge has been closed for all traffic as police continue their investigation. 

Queensland Traffic have told people to expect delays in the area and make alternative plans for travel. 

More to come.
