Elon Musk Announces Opening Date of His High-Speed Underground Tunnel

Musk wants to build a tunnel across western Los Angeles and another between a Metro subway line and Dodger Stadium.

Elon Musk tweeted Sunday that his underground transportation project will open its first test tunnel in December in Hawthorne, Calif. At this speed, the platform takes less than a minute to complete the test track.

While the trial tunnel - which begins on the site of Musk's rocket company SpaceX in Hawthorne, California - injects a dose of realism to his vision of a hyper-fast underground system, key questions remain. The tunnel runs from SpaceX's headquarters, turns west at 120th Street, and then runs two miles underneath the street. Musk went on to explain that the Boring Company will host an opening event on its launch, and free rides will be provided to the public the following day.

But documents submitted to city officials by Musk's tunneling company offer a sneak peek at the company's plans.

The public could get a chance to take a test ride on the Boring Company's futuristic, high-speed, underground traffic shortcut as soon as December 11.

Last week, a United States judge approved the settlement between the Securities and Exchange Commission, Tesla Inc and Elon Musk.

The first tunnel, under Hawthorne in the Los Angeles area, is nearly done and will open on December 10, Musk said. The tech tycoon seems to have agreed to the thought and replied: "That is correct".
