Asbestos Roof Repairs

I have a garage roof made of asbestos (Concrete Asbestos).
There are small holes and gaps where the corrugations overlap on the shallow pitch.

I have tried bitumen to repaior it but it will not adhere to the material, I was thinking that glass fibre or plastic resin may
stick to it and make a good seal - or even car body repair paste....

... any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

Sorry, but despite the labels on the cans, there is no canned fix. You must remove and replace the broken tiles/slates.

Best to just tear it off and install new 50 year shingles. They should last 20+ years.

No good idea for a DIY'er. A roof contractor would 'Do a tie-in' between units. Repair yours and stop in a non invasive manner at the neighbors', and take picture before and after to mitigate any liability on himself.

Waayyy to hard for me to explain here. Sorry.
