Artificial intelligence is also planned to make life easier for one million residents of the futuristic desert megacities.
A completely car-free city with one million inhabitants is being built in Saudi Arabia as part of the Neur futuristic giant metropolis planned for the Red Sea coast. The 170-kilometer-long city, called The Line, will have no cars, no streets and no carbon emissions, Mohamed bin Salman, heir to the throne, has announced. Modern cities are polluted, crowded, loud and detached from nature, which adversely affects the quality of life, the developers said in a Twitter message on Monday. As they wrote, the model city they envisioned for the future will be home to one million residents and will attract five million tourists a year. With 26,500 square kilometers of “megacities,” Neom is an important part of the Vision 2030 program, which plans to transform Saudi Arabia’s economy and reduce its dependence on oil. The “megacity,” as planned, will be established at the northwestern tip of the country from a $ 500 billion Public Investment Fund (PIF). The first phase of the investment is scheduled to be completed by 2025. According to the information, The Line will be the first city to be built “not around streets but around people” in 150 years. All areas of everyday life – such as schools, health centers, leisure facilities, parks – will be accessible within a five-minute walk, and greater distances can be reached by residents with a fully automated transport system. The designers promise that artificial intelligence will make life easier for residents, covering the city’s energy supply entirely from renewable sources. The project will create 380,000 new jobs as promised. This is not the first time that Saudi Arabia has set itself an ambitious goal with a plan for a futuristic desert megacity: in 2005, a plan for King Abdullah City (King Abdullah City) was announced, which would have reportedly created 1.3 million jobs at the time. . However, out of the six planned districts, only one was realized in the end, and instead of the planned two million, only 10,000 people currently live in the settlement created from scratch.
