Tesla releases map of planned LA Boring tunnels

Elon Musk's The Boring Company has released a map illustrating its plan for a system of tunnels to be constructed under Los Angeles (LA), California.

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".

Musk announced on Twitter on November 29 that the Boring Company "will compete to fund, build and operate a high-speed Loop connecting Chicago O'Hare Airport to downtown". The line in red that goes from West LA to Culver City is where the so far only approved 10 km proof-of-concept tunnel will run. The tunnel will initially be used for construction logistics verification, system testing, safety testing, operating procedure verification, and line-switching demonstrations. Musk's first demonstration of a auto elevator in-action, lowering a Tesla Model S into a tunnel entrance, was a first look at his vision for a cost effective, underground transportation system coming to life.

But before any passengers can use the system, it will need to be tested extensively. The phase one tunnel will not be open for the public until city officials and The Boring Company find their results to be successful.

Musk's tunnel-digging venture recently filed for a permit to dig beyond land adjoining SpaceX and Tesla's Design Center, an area where the company first received approval from the Hawthorne City Council for construction of a 2-mile test tunnel. But an underground network of tunnels with electric skates that ferry cars at speeds of up to 200 km/h, some people definitely think Musk has finally lost it.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that Musk's solution to Chicago's problems would be an underground public transportation system where 8-12 passengers travel between destinations on autonomous electric skates at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. The routes shown in blue are potential expansion options, though these are simply conceptual at this point.
