Solve any four questions each carry six marks.

1. Explain obligatory points. With sketches, discuss how these control the alignment.
2. Explain camber. What are the objects of camber? Specify the recommended ranges of camber for
different types of pavement surfaces.
3. The speeds of overtaking and overtaken vehicle are 80kmph and 60 kmph respectively. If the
acceleration of the overtaking vehicle is 2.5kmph per second, calculate the safe passing sight
distance for the following conditions: a) One-way traffic b) two-way traffic.
4. List the object of providing extra widening with neat sketch.
5. Calculate the length of transition curve using the following data: Design speed=80Kmph, Radius
of circular curve=250m, pavement width including extra widening=7.8m, allowable rate of
superelevation=1 in 150 (pavement rotated about the inner edge).
6. Two cars are approaching from opposite directions of a road with a gradient of two percent, with
velocities of 90 kmph and 75 kmph respectively. Calculate the minimum sight distance required
to avoid head on collision of both the cars. Reaction time of the driver is 2.5 sec and the
coefficient of friction is 0.35.
