The Saudis Are Building a Linear City Without Streets and Without Cars

Video February 11, 2021

It is time to draw a thick line behind the current appearance of cities. In the case of The Line, it is 170 km long and changes absolutely everything.

Imagine a city where everything needed is within a 5-minute walk. In which, instead of smog, you are surrounded by nature, because all the infrastructure is ingeniously hidden underground, is controlled by artificial intelligence and powered by renewable energy.

"Modern cities are unsustainable. There is a future, it’s called The Line."

In Saudi Arabia, in the NEOM region in the northwest of the peninsula, such a city is becoming a reality from this year. Under the distinctive name The Line, a linear 170 km long city is being created, connecting the Red Sea coast with the mountainous interior. It is to become a home for one million people (imagine a long Prague).

Key Features:

  • Over 1 million residents by 2030
  • More than 5 million tourists by 2030
  • 380,000+ jobs created by 2030
  • SAR 180bn to GDP by 2030
  • 100% powered by renewable energy
