Elon Musk details plans for LA's LOOP

18 May 2018

This would be the type of tunnels built to transport the masses.

It is unknown how fast the "electric skates" will go during tests on the public.

Known for aggressively taking on large-scale technical challenges with which he has had little previous experience, Musk ended his pitch on a humble note, telling the audience that realizing his vision "could only happen with public support".

Video footage shared by Musk has revealed what a journey through the tunnel might look like. Thursday evening, at the Leo Baeck Temple in the prosperous neighborhood of Bel-Air, Musk made a presentation, according to which the network of Musk's Boring Company, if and when it gets constructed, would carry passengers from Dodger Stadium near downtown Los Angeles International Airport in 10 minutes. If the Boring Company wins all the regulatory go-aheads that are required, Musk's past record of hard-to-imagine achievements may be a big reason why. In addition, local neighborhood groups are suing the city over the company's plans.

Musk, who is also CEO of private rocket-building firm SpaceX, did not attend the meeting.

Musk stated that his tunneling project would be built well under the existing metro lines and the city's utilities using electronic equipment from Boring Company. The project would involve hundreds of entrances where travelers in pods could descend to the network of tunnels that will shuttle them at high speeds across the city.

The skates are created to carry either single passenger vehicles or bus-like carriages that can seat between eight and 16 people.

He tweeted: 'Traffic is driving me nuts.

Musk has claimed the tunnel trip along his proposed route will take five minutes, compared to 45 minutes driving in normal LA traffic. And as much as it seeks to build, it might also destroy with its Boring Flamethrowers which, if Musk is serious, will be personally delivered by the company to each and every buyer.

The firm was granted permission in August of that year to dig under up to two miles (3.2 km) public roads around campus. This time it's not from Tesla but from The Boring Company, Elon Musk's another venture that is responsible for covering the earth with hyperloop tubes. Musk said that the full-fledged project would involve a tunnel along the Los Angeles' scandalously busy 405 Freeway where the traffic differed between the seventh and the eighth circles of hell.

The plan would rely on the same rocket the company is now building to take humans to Mars.

The plan calls for excavated soil to be compacted into concrete reinforcement segments for the tunnels, or turned into construction bricks. "In our mind, you won't hear us, you won't see us, you won't feel us, you won't even know we exist", Davis said.
