Elon Musk says first segment of LA tunnel complete

  • Chicago Looks To Elon Musk For Future Transport Solution

Elon Musk's ride-sharing vision could be the answer to how ride-sharing could dramatically affect the USA automotive industry, according to a Moody's Analytics researcher.

Billionaire Elon Musk has already completed the first segment of an underground tunnel network and just installed the most futuristic component of the system: a auto skate.

The tweets started simply, with Musk saying "I love floors". Will he really try to build a 3D network of tunnels beneath the Earth in order to create new transportation routes, and decongest highways? CEO noted on Twitter that the car/pod elevator that will be used to bring vehicles below ground to the tunnel is likely going to be operational next week.

Musk has previously spoken about the lofty goal of high-speed "Hyperloop" train-style system, while his interest in infrastructure has led to the creation of the Boring Company, which completed the first stage of its dig below LA last week. If Musk's tenacity is any indication, we will probably be utilizing The Boring Company tunnels in Los Angeles and other cities relatively soon.

White House Confirms Trump and Putin Will Meet at G-20 Summit
Trump later walked back the idea of a relationship with Putin in a 2016 interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. One of the goals of the president's trip, he said, will be "to develop a common approach to Russian Federation ".

In spite of being fully up and running mere months after its public introduction, The Boring Company is just the billionaire entrepreneur's latest hobby.

Musk's concept for tunnels running under the streets of Los Angeles won't feature regular roads, so that's where the need for this "electric sled" comes in. Part of that was designing Godot to do continuous digging and reinforcing of the tunnel walls, and beefing up the power of the machine.

In its on-the-scene report, the Daily Breeze says the finishing touches are being put on a roughly 600-foot-long bore pit and tunnel entrance, dug 20 feet beneath the ground-level lot. "Future tunnels will cover all of greater LA". "It's not that hard, but if you have tunnels in cities, it would massively alleviate congestion".

Seems like he's turning his suggestion into reality.
