Saudi Arabia reduces the line project from 1,000 kms to 2.4 kms

Remember that ambitious plan for a 1,000 kilometer long futuristic city in Saudi Arabia called The Line? Hold onto your camels, because there might be a major change in direction. According to reports from Bloomberg and others, The Line is undergoing a significant downsize.

Originally envisioned as a mega-city stretching for over 1,000 kilometers, the initial phase will now reportedly be a much more manageable 2.4 kilometers. This is alongside a reduction in the targeted population, from a staggering 1.5 million people to a still impressive 300,000.

The reasons behind this shift haven’t been officially confirmed, but it could be due to the sheer complexity and cost of building such a massive project from scratch. Scaling things back might make it more achievable and attractive to potential investors. While these are just reports, it seems The Line’s initial vision might be taking a smaller, more practical first step.
