Type of road surface --------> Range of camber.

1. High bituminous and cement surface --------------> 1 in 50 to 1 in 60.
2. Thin bituminous surfaces -------> 1 in 40 to 1 in 50.
3. WBM -----------------------> 1 in 33 to 1 in 40.
4. Earth Road -----------------> 1 in 25 to 1 in 33.

For cement concrete roads - 2% to 1.7 %?

How 1 in 160 to 1 in 140 possible?
