Parsons Corporation announced today that the company was appointed as a delivery partner for THE LINE, the centerpiece project for NEOM – the ‘land of the future’ being developed in northwest Saudi Arabia. Envisaged as a model for future sustainable urban living, THE LINE is being designed to have no cars, no roads, no carbon emissions, and to operate on 100% clean energy. THE LINE Giga-project is one of the most complex and challenging infrastructure projects in the world. The 170 km (106mi) long, 200m (656ft) wide and 500m (1640ft) tall linear urban development will be built around nature, instead of over it, serving as a blueprint for how people can live in harmony with the natural environment. Prioritizing the health and well-being of its citizens, the giga-project addresses some of the most pressing challenges facing humanity today, such as outdated infrastructure, pollution, traffic, and human congestion.
