Elon Musk, who is already producing electric cars (Tesla) and spacecraft (SpaceX), was delighted with this announcement.
“We look forward to building a Boring Company tunnel in Vegas. It should be operational by the end of the year ,” the South African billionaire wrote in a Twitter message. A contract is to be negotiated before final approval in June.
The construction of the tunnel should cost between 35 million and 55 million dollars, depending on the route to be chosen and the number of stations required.Once the expansion works are completed, the exhibition center will stretch over an area of 81 hectares, and a distance of 3.2 kilometers will separate its extremities. This distance requires “a guest transport solution dedicated to the site , ” says the center administrator.
The transport system could be expanded to finally link the city center and its famous boulevard bordered by hotel and airport casinos and other areas of the American metropolis.
Elon Musk, who set up The Boring Company to develop ad-hoc technologies, presented in December near Los Angeles a “test tunnel” for this project, designed to revolutionize urban transport, avoiding road traffic jams.
The idea came from the South African entrepreneur when he was stuck in traffic at the wheel of his car in the massive jams that occurred between his chair in the Bel Air neighborhood and SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, south of Los Angeles. In the long run, the “Hyperloop” project will allow thousands of electric and autonomous vehicles to travel across the world and across the world’s subways at speeds approaching 250 kilometers per hour.
