The Line Mindblowing Project

An eco-friendly city running only on renewable energy in the middle of the desert in South Arabia, can it really be possible?

 

The new city is part of the government’s ambitious Noem development project. The economic plan was created by the Crown Prince of South Arabia to get the country away from oil dependency. The project has been revealed over a high-tech video of what the city may look like with its trees, garden and residents potential life. “The designs revealed today for the city’s vertically layered communities will challenge the traditional flat, horizontal cities and create a model for nature preservation and enhanced human livability,” Said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

A tall, slim and bright city more than 105 miles long, with 9 million residents which is 25 percent of the current country’s population and runs entirely on renewable energy. The Line will stretch from the Red Sea to the city of Tabuk in South Arabia. It will cross desert, mountains and valley landscapes. Even if its emplacement in the middle of the Saudi desert says otherwise, the weather inside the wall will be an ideal climate due to the mix of shade, ventilation and sunlight. The designers are planning it to be 200 meters wide with a height of about 500 meters above sea level. The structure is comparable to a 125 level skyscraper. There will be no cars, residents will be able to use high-speed rail to go around the city within 20 minutes. The NEOM project includes an airport, industrial and research areas, sports and entertainment venues and tourism destinations.

 The unimaginable project estimaste cost is around 100 to 200 billion American dollars and maybe even more. The government claimed that it would generate 460 000 jobs.

The project attracted lots of criticism over the fact that the project is beyond reality. The Line supports zero emissions and a smaller footprint than conventional cities, critics note that those dream ideals will maybe create a high environmental price because it is entirely constructed in the desert. The plan is that all the energy will come from renewable sources. Green hydrogen earns export income, water is recycled, and it features the latest technologies and mixed-use buildings. 

At first sight, the project appears environmentally exciting, the construction of the city is presently in work and people are excited to see when the project The Line is going to be finished. Saudi predicted that 1.5 million people will be living in The Line by 2030.

Hi! My name is Majorie and my favorite hobby is dancing. I have been dancing since I was 5 years old and I’m mostly doing hip-hop. My friend describes me as an introverted person, but when you get to know me you learn that I have no shame. I think that my biggest fault is spending too much money, especially on clothes. When I’m older I would like to work in the fashion industry.
