Tesla CEO Elon Musk and visionary for The Boring Company has published the first images of a proposed tunnel map for Los Angeles.
The company said on its website that it "looks forward to receiving feedback from residents of the greater Los Angeles area on station locations and system improvements for Phase 2 and beyond".
Late last week, the city of Chicago called for interested parties to submit plans for a high-speed train service from the airport and while The Boring Company has no interest in trains, Musk has thrown his hat into the mix anyway.
While all of that remains a ways off, the company is making progress on its proof-of-concept tunnel. The part highlighted in red represents a 6.5-mile stretch that the company wants to use as a "proof-of-concept" tunnel. There, it would perform verification tests of all the necessary systems, like the vehicle sleds that will whisk riders to their destination, but also the equipment and processes being used to build the tunnels in the first place.
These tunnels would essentially function as fast freeways, where vehicles and passenger pods latch onto electric skates and get shuttled along at up to 150 miles per hour (241 km/h).
Tesla releases map of planned LA Boring tunnels
Taking to Twitter, the entrepreneur said The Boring Company will compete to fund, build, and operate a high-speed Loop from Chicago O'Hare. The phase one tunnel will not be open for the public until city officials and The Boring Company find their results to be successful. SpaceX's headquarters is neatly at the center of this in Hawthorne.
The Phase 1 route is inline with Musk's recent announcement that he intends to build a tunnel that runs parallel to a section of Los Angeles' notorious 405 freeway and consistent victor of "America's worst freeways".
The underground tunnels would allow cars to travel at up to 200 kmph on electric skates, potentially easing up traffic above.
Phase II is a huge expansion of the tunnel system and is simply a concept right now with no "finalized alignment".
The second route would be developed in cooperation with Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles, city governments in the greater Los Angeles area, and the general public, says the company.
