|r > 300 there is no need extra widening.|
|Anshu said: (Nov 23, 2016)|
|150 < 300 so extra widening is provided.|
|Bappa said: (Feb 11, 2017)|
|As the radius 150 less than 300m, so widening of curves provide by.0.6m (when r=101 to 300) for two lane. So given answer is wrong.|

|Extra widening of single lane pavements is 'Nil' for radius 101 to 300.|
|Roy said: (Oct 24, 2017)|
|Provision of extra widening is nil, for a single lane of radius greater than 60m and for two-lane greater than 300 m.|
|Madhu said: (Dec 29, 2017)|
|For single lane road r>100 , extra widening=0
For double lane road r>300, extra widening=0
In question, they have not mentioned whether it is a single lane or double lane road. so the question is contradictory.

|As this is a hill roads no extra widening is provided.|
|Abhishek said: (Oct 7, 2018)|
|FOR SINGLE LANE ROAD R>100 Ew=0.
FOR TWO LANE ROAD R>300 Ew=0.
|Manish said: (Sep 6, 2019)|
|150 lies between 5>R>300, so EW provide in both side.|
|Anirban Roy said: (Aug 24, 2020)|
|For 1 lane road if R>60--> Ew= 0.
For 2 lane road if R>300--> Ew= 0.

|Agree with you, thanks @Manish.|

|Recommended by Indian Roads Congress.
For hill roads, the radius 150 metres no need to provide extra widening for any type of Road.
|Mangesh said: (Dec 26, 2020)|
|As per IRC if r>300 then no need to provide extra widening.
If r<50 then extra widening provided on only one side.
And if 'r' is 8n between 50 to 300m then extra widening provided on both sides.

|As per IRC, in hilly roads r>50m, so no need to provide extra widening.|
