there was mention some years ago on here of a tarmac patch repair product. Any ideas of what it was called? going to need to quote for patching a car park that will have to be trafficed almost immediately!
Was thinking about just buying some loose tarmac, but may be more problematical

I s'pose it depends on the amount you need and depth. There is of course good old cold lay bags. I remember Simeon had a repair  kit that he was trying to market ( what ever happened to Simeon ? ) anything bigger   the likes of Dave L can give you more info'.

Simeon was a very naughty boy and had to go away. The company he once managed is still in business, so I have to be careful what I say.

However, there is an abundance of repair macadams on the market just now, ranging from the very good Highways Agency approved standard right through to packs of cut-back mac off the shelf in a DIY shed.

Here's a company that have never so much as bought me a pint...but bloody well ought to do for all the business I generate for them - Instarmac

Now evening getting lighter etc can't you just do it out of hours?  I'd do it properly like Tony said or sub in some lads with a hot box wagon. I've use the instamac stuff but only on small holes like 100x100mm max

I used bags of cold lay on my drive years ago. Some holes where large and deep. I dug out old, tack coated with bitumen and built up on layers, lasted me the 10 years i was there and is still there 3 years later, not sunk or broke yet.
Only used hand pummel to compact.
