Lawsuits threaten to derail Musk's Los Angeles tunnel

MUSK BORING

Elon Musk's vision of a high-speed transportation system was brought to reality underneath the rambling and traffic-clogged Los Angeles to an impressively supportive crowd during a hearing for residents.

"Boring Company Hyperloop will take you from city center under ground & ocean to spaceport in 10 to 15 mins". Musk also noted that he hoped the Loop would supplement existing transport systems and connect public transport lines.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce plans to combine SpaceX's BFR (Big F*****g Falcon Rocket) with The Boring Company's underground hyperloop.

Musk's project has picked up a key partner in the LA Metro, the city's public transportation provider.

Musk's celebrity status preceded him, as some visitors pushed and shoved their way into the crowded hall before the event began.

Whether staunch critics were swayed remained to be seen.

A spokesperson for the museum said the display would begin next week, although the exact day was unconfirmed. This acquisition brings the British Museum's world famous Egyptian collection right up to date.

Elon Musk's needs to make use of the largest rocket SpaceX has ever constructed to ferry people across the globe, promising passengers the flexibility to get wherever on Earth in below an hour.

Plans call for excavating a 2.7-mile (4.4-km) passage below a stretch of the congested Sepulveda Boulevard corridor on the West Side of Los Angeles and the adjacent town of Culver City.

Resistance to his tunneling project marks a somewhat new type of challenge for Musk. Last week, he showed off the first Boring Company tunnel under Los Angles, saying it's nearly done and awaiting regulatory approvals. He teased that they would be delivered personally via a Boring Company van. He added he has every intent of submitting to a full environmental study for the tunnel network as a whole when the time comes.

The test tunnel will stretch almost three miles along Sepulveda on LA's Westside, one of the most traffic-congested parts of the city. Tunnels, on the other hand, Musk detailed were "way less nerve-racking than flying cars" and still "so fun".

Boring says the tunnel would serve as an experimental proof-of-concept site to demonstrate ideas for a traffic-easing system Musk wants to build to rapidly whisk individual cars and small groups of pedestrians from place to place beneath the surface. "You won't even know we exist", Musk said.

Musk, the Silicon Valley high-tech tycoon best known for his Tesla Inc electric vehicle manufacturer, planned to make a rare personal appearance at a public event in Los Angeles on Thursday night to answer questions from residents about his tunneling plans.
