Road closure O’Connell Street from Friday 9 November 2018

We have been advised that a 1km section of O’Connell Street outside of the Western Sydney Records Centre is being upgraded. 
O’Connell Street will be closed to traffic in both directions between O’Connell Lane and our eastern boundary.

This will temporarily impact your visit to our Reading Room.


You will still be able to drive to the Western Sydney Records Centre and park onsite but entry will be through our eastern gate.

If you are coming from the west, we suggest you turn right off the Great Western Highway onto Gipps Street, then Sunflower Drive and O’Connell Street. If you are coming from the east, your journey should not be affected. Use the Kent Road exit from the M4.

Bus services

There will be no bus service that travels along O’Connell Street. All bus travel will involve a 15-20 minute walk from the closest stop to the Western Sydney Records Centre.

We advise you to check for the most up to date information on the Busways website and the Transport Infoline website.

The relevant bus routes are 770, 774 and 776.

We understand that the road will be closed for 20 weeks, weather permitting.
