    Contractors from across the world are gearing up to submit bids for NEOM’s 60 kilometer corridor that connects The Line with the project’s industrial city OXAGON, according to MEED. The last date for bid submission is Sept 11.

    According to the MEED report, some of the prospective bidders for the project include Spain’s Acciona, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Khifa Contracting, Al-Yamama Co., Nesma & Partners, Italy’s Webuild, South Korea’s Samsung C&T, and China’s PowerChina.
    OXAGON is also known as the New Industrial City, or NIC. The upcoming project includes the design and building of a 60-kilometer-long infrastructure corridor running south from The Line at Neom City Station through Neom Bay Mansions, Neom Bay airport and on to NIC.

  4. A car-free modern city will indeed change the world.

    NEOM's location at the doorstep of Israel, Jordan and Egypt is an advantage too. Much closer to Europe.

    Come 5-7 years and we'll all forget about Dubai.

  5. Some changes of designer and options for how "The Line" will work seem to be afoot.



    Saudi Arabia adds Morphosis to project team for its NEOM smart city megaproject
    The Line, as the car-free linear city that will form the backbone of Neom is known, could cost up to $200 billion to build, the prince said last year, though that was before the plan changed to include gigantic horizontal buildings. The buildings would be “different heights as you go,” adapting to the landscape, with their final size determined by engineering considerations and the terrain, Al-Nasr said. — Bloomberg
    The OPEC nation has thus far been mum as to the new plan’s details but says it will be funded in part through an increase in surplus revenues overseen by the Public Investment Fund, which is managed by NEOM’s CEO Al-Nasr. It is yet unclear whether Bechtel, who previously signed on their servicesfor the then-estimated $500 billion venture’s light rail and utility systems, will remain on for the project’s updated version, wherein Morphosis and designer Thom Mayne will deliver two parallel 1,640-foot-tall structures said to stretch from the Red Sea into the desert ar lengths of up to half a mile.

    NEOM on Monday awarded drill and blast tunneling contracts for work on the region’s infrastructure, which is considered one of the world’s largest transportation and utility infrastructure projects, and it is an essential element in ensuring NEOM continues to meet its development schedule.
    Two joint venture groups will undertake the project, which is separated by lower and upper geographies, with the first contract awarded to FCC Construction SA/China State Construction Engineering Corporation/Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting Company Joint Venture (FCC/CSCEC/SAJCO JV).

    The second contract has been awarded to Samsung C&T Corporation/Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. Ltd/Saudi Archirodon Company Ltd Joint Venture (SHAJV).
    The tunnels work will deliver over 28 kilometers in length and provide separate tunnels for high-speed and freight rail services — making the movement of people and goods faster, safer and easier. The rock excavated as part of this tunneling project will be processed for subsequent reuse within the permanent concrete lining of the tunnels and other projects within NEOM to ensure minimal impact to natural landscapes.

    NEOM, the sustainable regional development in Saudi Arabia, and flag carrier Saudia have partnered to offer weekly service to international destinations from NEOM Bay Airport (NUM), marking the start of commercial services at the airport.

    Saudia will operate direct flights to select regional and international destinations. Saudia will begin with weekly flights to Dubai International Airport by the end of June 2022, with plans to expand to London soon thereafter. Aircraft traveling to the selected destinations will have a joint NEOM-Saudia livery, showcasing the NEOM brand to the world.


    NEOM sits at the crossroads of three continents, with 40 per cent of the world accessible within a four-hour flight. NEOM’s mobility strategy will see the further evolution of air travel to NEOM in the coming years, supporting its vision to shape the future of air mobility through seamless and customer-centric connectivity, rooted in cutting-edge technology.

    There isn't much in those areas at the moment, only contractor accomodation until the hotels are in place.

    There's some internal tensions about what will and won't be allowed in NEOM and currently a lot of PR being put towards attracting those who don't want to live under Saudi regulations but without specifically saying they won't adhere to the same rules. It's a thin line they are walking and it looks like the official statements aren't quite as agreed as you would expect!

    Saudi Arabia on Monday rejected claims that its planned futuristic megacity known as NEOM will have different rules from the rest of the conservative kingdom and function like a “country within a country”.
    In an interview published last week by the UAE’s The National newspaper, Andrew McEvoy, head of NEOM’s tourism sector, was quoted as saying that residents of the $500 billion Red Sea project would be known as “Neomians” rather than Saudis and that alcohol — long banned in Saudi Arabia — could potentially be sold there. “NEOM will be treated as a country within a country, with its own economic zone and its own authority. We need to make sure its laws and regulations match the ambitions of those we are trying to attract to work and live here,” McEvoy said.
    The company developing NEOM responded with a statement stressing the site was “absolutely subject to the sovereignty and systems of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”, according to a report by the official Saudi Press Agency. NEOM will be “subject to all rules that are applied to any part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in terms of issues related to security, defence and border protection”, the report said. The report allowed, though, that NEOM “will enjoy some special regulations related to investment”.
