Hawthorne, CA, United States (4E) – The first picture of a automobile tunnel being drilled beneath Los Angeles by The Boring Company had been revealed by the corporate’s founder, Elon Musk, who can be CEO of Tesla and SpaceX.

The stressed Musk stated the picture in his tweet depict a 500 foot-long tunnel that may “hopefully” lengthen from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to U.S. Route 101 alongside Interstate 405. The 405, which is among the most congested highways within the United States, has helped earn Los Angeles the doubtful distinction of getting the worst site visitors within the nation.

Musk needs to take motor automobiles off the highway and as an alternative have them highway down a tunnel on high-speed electrical platforms known as sleds or “skates.” Musk stated the sleds will journey at as much as 201 km/h (125 miles per hour) by means of the tunnels.

He earlier stated the tunnels being dug by The Boring Company will likely be “standard pressurized tunnels” that will not be vacuum-sealed just like the above floor tunnels being constructed for an additional Musk idea, the Hyperloop.

Musk says the primary route for his automobile tunnels will run from LAX to Culver City, then to Santa Monica, and finish in Westwood. He claims the tunnel journey will take a scant 5 minutes from LAX to Westwood in comparison with regular driving time of 45 minutes in regular site visitors.

The Boring Company will even drill a motorized vehicle tunnel in Maryland. Earlier this month, the corporate obtained a utility allow for the development of a Baltimore to Washington tunnel from the Maryland’s Department of Transportation.

A 35 mile-long stretch of this tunnel between Penn Station in Baltimore to Washington Union Station will begin close to Fort Meade.
