Gary is capable of now going 14 times faster than a tunnel boring machine. It's not boring at all. "Future tunnels will cover all of greater LA", Musk wrote in his Instagram account. Using a network of underground tunnels and having vehicles zip around on electric sleds, passengers could travel without having to deal with ground-level traffic at speeds up to 124 miles per hour.
"Warning, this may cause motion sickness or seizures", Musk warned. Another Instagram post shows the segments are already in the final assembly stages.
The company's first boring machine, called Godot, is now being installed at the mouth of the tunnel.
He has plans to begin test excavation in a Hawthorne parking lot located near SpaceX headquarters.
Musk said he plans to build a tunnel from Los Angeles International Airport to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood and Sherman Oaks.
Here's a concept video showing what a completed tunnel network would look like beneath Los Angeles.
The idea of a huge underground tunnel where cars travel from point A to point B on car-carrying platforms or sleds with rapid speeds saw the light of day at an undisclosed location. Musk hopes that with their engineering know-how, The Boring Company can see a breakthrough of one mile per week.
Test video businessman posted on his page.
That would require some major advances in tunnel design (like reducing the diameter of these tunnels) and improvements in boring machinery. "Would mean Westwood to LAX in 5 mins". Musk told Wiredinduced demand becomes irrelevant because he's thinking of building tunnels "going 10, 20, 30 layers deep (or more)".
"We're trying to dig a hole under L.A., and this is to create the beginning of what will hopefully be a 3D network of tunnels to alleviate congestion", Musk said at TED2017 in late April.
