Amey uses Instarmac solution to quickly repair pothole

Highway maintenance solutions company Instarmac has provided Amey with a solution to fix a significant pothole on the M180.

Due to the location of the pothole, the repair needed to be carried out quickly, but permanently, to keep motorists and operatives as safe as possible whilst working on this extremely busy road.

To complete the repair, Instarmac’s Tough Patch® was applied in 100mm layers and compacted until the same level as the surrounding carriageway.

Tough Patch® is a PTS PAS approved, cold lay surface material for road repairs, which utilises a reactive binder that rapidly cures to create a first time, permanent repair that will accept traffic immediately after installation. By utilising Tough Patch®, the amount of time needed for closures and traffic management can be reduced, resulting in a significantly safer working environment for operatives carrying out the work.

The hazardous site was repaired quickly and motorists along the M180 are now enjoying a pothole-free journey.

Amey commented: “Tough Patch is very easy to use and spreads with no big chunks and doesn’t go hard if opened and only used half of the tub.”
