The first route, outlined in red on the Boring Company's tunnel map, is meant to be a proof-of-concept and will not be used for public transportation, says the company.
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. Boring Company's experience is in tunneling, suggesting that it would propose an underground system.
As for fears of the tunnels collapsing during an natural disaster, Musk said this was not something people would need to worry about. The tunnel will initially be used for construction logistics verification, system testing, safety testing, operating procedure verification, and line-switching demonstrations. "Phase 1 would include the construction of a 6.5-mile proof-of-concept tunnel through Los Angeles and Culver City" reads the tunnel map description on the company's website.
With the support of the Mayor of LA, the company has filed an excavation permit for the construction of a 10.5 km tunnel from West LA to Inglewood, via Culvert City.
If (and it's a big if) the permit is approved, the tunnel is built, and all the testing proves successful, The Boring Company would then seek agreement from the County government and City government to open it to the public.
Both private vehicles and larger shuttles with "between 8 and 16 passengers" would be ferried through the tunnels on sled-like "electric skates" that will travel up to 150 miles per hour (though the plans note they could eventually go faster), the documents show.
The blue lines on the map indicate a possible phase 2 of the project.
Phase II is a huge expansion of the tunnel system and is simply a concept right now with no "finalized alignment". It may not be as grandiose as colonizing Mars or even a hyperloop train, but, considering how closer to home it is, it is actually harder to get government approval, much less the public nod.
