If, like the majority of our customers, you are a council, you have to be certain your infrastructure expenditure is acceptable and serves your community.
That’s never a problem when you choose TripStop as your concrete jointing system for footpaths and cycleways.
In many locations, slabs without TripStop are repaired or replaced every two years. Our proven no-fail track record means TripStop will prolong the life of your pathways and eliminate the costs of slab repair and replacement.
Once you remove the need for repairs, ever-increasing maintenance budgets become ever-decreasing ones.
So, your council will deliver savings for years to come that can be reallocated for other purposes or to different areas of your community.
Since 2002, over 200 councils have had the foresight to adopt a more sustainable approach to their network of footpaths and cycleways. In that time, we’ve had no returns. And, crucially, we’ve had no fails.
The result is maintenance-free, sustainable pathways that are safe, user-friendly and frequently used by people living and working in the community.

Over the years, our profile has evolved to be more streamlined, more compact and easier to handle, but every bit as durable.
If you’ve researched contemporary jointing systems, you may have found others claiming to be comparable to TripStop, but:
TripStop helps you create more sustainable infrastructure that delivers widespread, long-term benefits to the communities you serve.
Infrastructure Sustainability can be defined as infrastructure that is designed, constructed and operated to optimise environmental, social and economic outcomes of the long term.
TripStop is now used in tens of thousands of tree-affected locations with not one single failure.
Zero fails mean less environmental harm caused by grinding and patching repairs, or frequent concrete slab replacement.
Smart councils choose TripStop for a range of other reasons, including:
Concrete footpaths and cycleways should have a life cycle of 50-70 years, but this is drastically reduced by tree root invasion and soil movement. TripStop is proven to prevent slab displacement, so it extends the life of footpaths and cycleways but shrinks maintenance expenditure.
Paths are safer for community users, meaning less risk of trip and fall accidents, resulting in fewer injuries and fewer legal claims.
Footpath and cycleway repairs often result in diversions for users, disrupted service provision (water or electricity) or access to local businesses. By creating maintenance-free pathways, you eliminate these frustrating, sometimes costly interruptions.
Replacement slabs require more cement production, which releases more CO2 into the atmosphere. By eliminating the need to regularly replace slabs, you reduce the carbon footprint of your footpath and cycleway network.
Research shows that the easier it is for people to get around their community using footpaths or cycleways – the better it is for local businesses. (Learn more from this ABC podcast.)
Is your council ready to save money and prioritise sustainability for your community infrastructure?
Or are you a construction professional who works on local government pathway projects?
We can help you build sustainable footpaths and cycleways that serve communities now, and into the future.
