Al Shugairi claims that after a few years, water pipelines will be able to transport this fresh water from one place to another. This suggests that the undertaking will be twice as big as the Nile.

The pipes under Saudi cities are 126,000 kilometres long and would generate 9.4 million cubic metres of water every day if they were to circumnavigate the globe thrice.

Well, this reflects another project of Saudi for the welfare of the people and the nation together. A multitude of similar projects is coming up to make the country stand supreme and be acceptable to westerners. This will in turn change the facade of tourism in the Kingdom at large. Transport facilities in Saudi are also undergoing several changes to build a better infrastructure for the citizens and residents.

The relevance of these upcoming projects in Saudi reflects the vision of the King and his team to make Saudi a better place to be.
