Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Boring Company, talked about the crazy transportation project that will end the traffic problem of Los Angeles.
Deserving the nickname of real life Iron Man, Musk is preparing to realize one of the most remarkable projects of recent years.
The Los Angeles Tunnel, which initially started as a dream, but later became a reality with the support it received, is built on an infrastructure that will rapidly remove the cars in the tunnel at 200 km per hour.
The tunneling, which will stretch for 2.5 kilometers under the city of California, continues at full speed. Another aim of this project, which will significantly relieve city traffic, is to create intercity connecting tunnels.
Speaking at the information session at The Boring Company in Los Angeles, Musk said he was late for the event due to traffic on the freeway, calling Los Angeles traffic “the seventh or eighth floor of hell”.
Indicating that the crazy project often loses time in Los Angeles traffic, Musk said, “This problem in the big cities of the USA is destroying our souls. Digging a tunnel is one of the few ways to solve this problem. ”
The famous inventor said the 5-kilometer portion of the test path for the high-speed train project, Hyperloop, was completed, adding that people who want to experience this experience can participate in Hyperloop trips for only $ 1.
Promising an eight-minute trip from Los Angeles city center to the airport, Musk said the car could receive around 16 passengers each time.
Underlining that the project is supported by official institutions, the entrepreneur said, “We can make hundreds of tunnels according to the need, there is no limit in this. If this system sees more demand, it can go much underground than targeted. ”
Musk did not neglect to touch Uber's flying taxi project. "You cannot fly helicopters between neighborhoods without disturbing people," said the inventor, saying that all the digging and drilling needed to build Hyperloop is not far from the city and not disturbing anyone. Uber plans to launch its flying taxi service in Los Angeles in 2020 for the first time.
Musk also said he wanted to move the tunnel project to other big cities, and he even said that talks with New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC governors had been positive and had received an oral approval from local governments.
