The section drawing is fully constructed with levels and chainages annotated in tables below the section lines. These tables will automatically update whenever the design is modified in vertical or plan.
The section through the existing ground survey is drawn as a green line. The road centreline section is in red.
If a storm and/or foul drainage system has been added to the design, that is also shown, with annotation in a table above the section lines.
