Monitoring air quality

We have automatic monitoring stations at:

  • Piccadilly Gardens
  • Manchester Sharston
  • Oxford Road
  • Bridge Street

These give us high quality hourly data that are independently audited. You can download the data from the following websites: 

We also have sites that collect samples for analysis at monthly intervals:

  • Nitrogen dioxide passive diffusion tubes - results available at CleanAirGM (monthly sampling).

Data from all of the above sites are also included in annual air quality reports. Reports prior to 2021 can be downloaded at our archived air quality reports.

You can read our archived monitoring data reports from 2010-2020
