is a New South Wales
rural road linking Oberon
to the regional highway hub of Bathurst
, where several roads including the Great Western Highway
, Mid-Western Highway
, Mitchell Highway
and Bathurst-Ilford Road
join. The road is designated as Main Road 253.
It is fully sealed over its entire length and of high enough standard to accommodate B-double trucks.
In conjunction with the Goulburn-Oberon Road from near the Hume Highway to Oberon, this scenic route provides a leisurely and surprisingly direct route between Bathurst and Goulburn.
The only town on O'Connell Road between Bathurst and Oberon is O'Connell.
