The authority that was responsible for the former Napthine government's dumped East West Link road project is to be disbanded.
On Tuesday, staff at the Linking Melbourne Authority were told it would be wound up.
A statement from Treasurer and acting Roads Minister Tim Pallas said the government recognised the expertise of staff at the authority in delivering major infrastructure.
Mr Pallas said the Transport Department was now working with the authority to retain key staff and redirect them to work on other projects.
The project is finally dead.
