NEOM January 10, 2021
According to the website of Neom, which is still under construction, the new city will be free of streets and cars, so that high-speed transportation will disappear in underground tunnels, and anyone can get what they need by walking a short distance of 5 minutes maximum.
The plan includes forming cognitive communities of more than a million people from around the world, forming a platform for innovation and thriving businesses, according to NEOM.
The site stated that the “The Line” project is located in Neom, northwestern Saudi Arabia, at the edge of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea, adding that the city is located at the crossroads of the world, and will be a global center for innovation, where 40% of the world’s population can reach Neom in less than 4 hours.
