Video: Explaining the concept behind Neom’s the Line

By Catrin Jones04 August 2022

Saudi Arabia’s Neom mega-development ‘The Line’ is an ambitious project to build a 100 mile long horizontal structure.

The project is part of the Neom development and is reportedly designed to run on 100% renewable energy. The structure will vertically layer homes, offices, public parks and schools within a mirrored facade stretching over 170km (150 miles).

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman first unveiled plans for ‘The Line’ in January 2021, the first major construction project for the US$500 billon NEOM business zone aimed at diversifying the economy of the world’s top oil exporter. It has been reported that the prince had said last year that the project’s infrastructure would cost US$100 billion to US$200 billion.
