Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman unveiled his latest vision for Saudi Arabia’s future beyond oil: a city with no cars, roads or carbon emissions.

Saudi Arabia unveiled plans for a walkable 170-kilometre-long city built around nature called ‘The Line’, which will have zero cars, zero roads and zero carbon emissions. “The Line” will be part of the $500 billion Neom project

According to Bloomberg, Neom is a major part of Prince Mohammed’s plan to diversify the economy of the world’s largest crude exporter. Announced in 2017, the project spans more than 10,000 square miles in a remote area of the country’s northwest. It’s described on its website as “a bold and audacious dream” that will become a hub for new technologies and businesses.

It will have all daily needs like schools, medicines and clinics within a five-minute reach and no journey in the city will be longer than 20 minutes. The city will also have AI-enabled mobility solutions

It is said that the city would have 1 million residents and create 380,000 jobs by 2030. However, no details on how it would be funded were revealed.
