Announcement Marston Holdings acquires Vortex IoT to enhance end-to-end air quality and decarbonisation offering.

Traffic Management and Pollution Reduction Schemes

We provide proven schemes to reduce traffic, congestion and air pollution in your urban areas.

Combine hyperlocal air quality monitoring networks with the latest in traffic management technology for unprecedented insights.

The Challenge. There is no safe level of Air Pollution

Public authorities need to reduce air pollution, particularly carbon emissions, by implementing traffic interventions that work.

Knowing where to implement your traffic management policies, and effectively enforcing them, is a complex and resource-heavy challenge. You need to automate and future proof your air pollution reduction schemes with cost-effective technologies.

Why? Because regulation is only going to increase in coming years, which isn’t surprising when you consider the facts:


world population live in heavily polluted areas


deaths each year caused by air pollution


By 2050 air pollution is set to be the no.1 cause of environment-related deaths worldwide

We needed a system that allowed us to recognise subtle changes in local pollution relating to traffic behaviour. When searching, we found traditional monitors to be far too expensive to install in the density required to see the changes.

Maintenance free air quality monitors

  • Actionable, accurate data insights
  • Hyperlocal view of air quality
  • Minimised costs and time-saving
  • Robust, reliable units

Combining historical transport data, real-time traffic data, weather data and other disparate data sources with air quality data allows us to highlight pollution sources at street level. To be able to then use that same technology to implement and enforce decarbonisation policies is incredibly powerful.
