Who is this marvellous fluorescent-vested highway dancing hero?

The search is on for a road worker who made a tedious wait in traffic slightly less taxing by his dancing antics.

Melinda Hatherly was waiting in traffic on her way to the Bay of Plenty earlier this month when she filmed the man dancing on the job.

She captured the vision on the top deck of bus between Flat Hills and Taihape.

The man was spreading "road radiance" and is a "road star" who made so many people smile, she told 1 NEWS.

The man can be seen dancing and waving energetically as traffic passes slowly through a stretch of road works.

At one point, what looks like a military grade tank is also spotted passing through.

Ms Hatherly says she’d "love to know who he is".

“We can always tell when somebody loves their work,” she says.
