    Here's the current state of the area but that could be changing soon as groundwork begins to ramp up soon:











    Qiddiya has awarded a contract to Saudi Pan Kingdom Company (SAPAC) to build perimeter fencing as construction ramps up at the site.

    SAPAC, an established Saudi construction company, will place security fencing around the entire premises of Qiddiya, the Kingdom?s Capital of Entertainment, Sports and the Arts. This first layer of security will enable a slew of construction projects, set to begin this year, to begin bringing in heavy construction machinery and restrict unauthorized access to the site.

    ?With the signing of this 12-month contract, the first phase of developing Qiddiya?s security protocol has commenced. We are proud to work with an experienced Saudi company as we set out to create the Kingdom?s Capital of Entertainment, Sports and the Arts,? said Salman Al-Hubeis, Executive Director ? Infrastructure & Area Development at Qiddiya.

    The contract work includes 440,000 sq. meters of site clearing as part of the site preparation process, 20 km of security fencing, and 23 km of cable barriers, as well as 1 million cubic meters of earthworks to be filled.

    Saleh Bin Salim Al-Harbi, CEO of SAPAC, said: ?For over 25 years, we?ve worked with leading firms in the country. We are thrilled to work with Qiddiya, a project which is set to change the landscape of entertainment in the Kingdom. To facilitate construction at the site, securing the premises is going to be the first step.?

    I'm not totally clear on this but there seems to be some issues between the local residents in Bogor and MNC. Apparently there are disputes about who has the rights to the land that MNC is using to build the theme park and MNC Lido City as a whole plus fencing that MNC put up is limiting access to a cemetery. MNC is being accused of not adequately acknowledging and responding to these issues. The local residents have sent a summons to the subsidiary of MNC Group which is developing the park.

    The Aichi Prefecture government announced that the theme park's approximate cost is 34 billion yen (31 billion for construction of all five areas and 3 billion for design and planning). It is estimated that there will be approximately 1.8 million visitors a year once all five areas are opened.

    Construction on the park hasn't resumed quite yet due to the Chinese New Year holidays and virus outbreak but meanwhile members from multiple government committees were on site for inspection on January 31 to ensure proper "implementation of various epidemic prevention measures such as closed entrances of various units, leadership on duty, publicity of epidemic prevention knowledge, and provision of epidemic prevention materials"

    In the background of this image of them doing the inspection is Hogsmeade Village:
