Elon Musk Says LA Test Tunnel Nearly Done

Elon Musk Says LA Test Tunnel Nearly Done

Elon Musk on Thursday posted footage of a prototype vehicle tunnel bored underneath Los Angeles, saying it would be available for people to use in a matter of months. According to Musk, this very first tunnel is nearly complete and once the regulatory approvals are finished, the Boring tunnel will be open to the public for free rides.

"Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project", he continued.

Citizens of Los Angeles should soon be able to check out the new tunnel that's being bored by Elon Musk's Boring Company-for free.

Musk has said that the demo system rides will be free, with the full service tickets costing less than a bus ticket.

The Hawthorne-based company is also digging a tunnel in Baltimore, Maryland, and advanced as a contender to dig a high-speed system connecting downtown Chicago and Chicago O'Hare International Airport. If the Boring company already drilled all of it is not clear.

When one Twitter user requested a stop near Vandenburg, an Air Force base in Santa Barbara County from which SpaceX launches rockets, Musk responded, "A cool thing about the design is that's easy to incorporate branch loops to serve small to mid-size cities without slowing down the main loop at all".

The tunnel is set to run 2.7 miles through West LA, starting at Pico Boulevard and ending at Washington Boulevard in Culver City with no stations in between to avoid "major utility lines and other underground hazards that can slow or complicate construction".

The Tesla, SpaceX and Boring executive said that the tunnel is now pending regulatory approval.
