Announcing the deal Stephen Leece, CEO Citi Logik said: “We see the establishment of Citi Logik in Australia as a natural extension of our work in the UK, Middle east, India and Scandinavia. Across the world Cities are experiencing the same issues of urbanisation - congestion, pollution, the need to invest in infrastructure. Citi Logik and Matrix Traffic analytics enable city planners to make smarter choices about resource allocation when pressures on public finances mean that they must do more with less. We are particularly pleased to bring Citi Logik’s capabilities to Australia and New Zealand's major cities with the prospect of developing world leading traffic analytics capability derived from the local 3/4/5G networks.”

In Australia, Matrix is a leader in traffic surveys, research, data collections and information analysis within the traffic and transport fields.
