The Boring Company Has Almost Finished Digging A Tunnel Under LA

The Boring Company Has Almost Finished Digging A Tunnel Under LA

Musk's plans have drawn criticism from transportation experts who warn they may worsen traffic congestion. Musk has said that a ticket to ride the tunnel could cost less than a bus ticket.

The Boring Company has been working for well more than a year on a tunnel that has its entrance in what was once a parking lot next to SpaceX's headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif. Musk's Boring Company is now seeking approval to tunnel into western Los Angeles.

CEO of The Boring Company Elon Musk has announced on his Instagram account that the first underground tunnel in Los Angeles is nearly ready and only requires some bureaucratic issues to be settled.

"Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project", he continued. "Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success".

Musk fans on Twitter were beside themselves with excitement.

"Awesome! Just awesome! You achieve unbelievable things!" wrote another.

Musk has also confirmed that the company has already started tunnelling a route between Washington DC and NY and expects to begin work on a Los Angeles to San Francisco line next year. This has now been extended by around two miles, stretching toward Los Angeles International Airport, LAX.

When he's not preoccupied with running Tesla, which has recently suffered a string of PR disasters after several deadly crashes involving its electric vehicles, Musk is busy with other ventures, including SolarCity, SpaceX and his Tesla Gigafactory. Musk has said the pods will be able to outpace jets.

In Musk's latest announcement, he revealed that The Boring Company will require regulatory approval before any public testing can take place.
