The cement and bitumen-based product manufacturer Instarmac says its pothole repair solution is the answer to the maintenance problems facing Britain’s roads.
Last month the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) revealed that the estimated cost to get the local road network in England and Wales back to a reasonable condition is around £12 billion.
Instarmac says its solution can be implemented quickly without a need to close roads, making pothole fixing far easier.
Its showing off its products at Intertraffic this year and Export Manager Angus Longward told Highways Magazine reporter Paul Hutton, “the product can be poured into the pothole, tamped down and immediately opened to traffic. There are many reasons for potholes [including] global warming. Our product can be used in an area of one square metre.”
