my plate compactor does not go deep enough

I reckon it will do the job fine. 100mm isn't thick. but give it plenty of whacking because type 3 has voids in it and may joggle into place after a few whacks.

A very heavy roller might even be too heavy for this, and form itself a hollow.

or skim a bit of the top and do it in 2 layers.

Looks like a very neat job, and I see you've sleeved the 110mm pipes so you retain some "wiggle-room" I assume?
