Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, announced last week that his new venture is ready for its first project. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 125 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
Elon Musk has given a glimpse into the underground network of tunnels he's building to help people avoid travelling through LA traffic. Late past year the Tesla and SpaceX CEO announced he was creating a new venture, The Boring Company, to start digging traffic-tackling tunnels under Los Angeles. Musk allayed those fears by responding in the affirmative when asked if the tunnels will be "earthquake-proof".
He also showed off the company's first Boring Machine.
The company's first "Boring Machine" is named "Gardot" and will be several hundred feet long once it is complete.
"First tunnel for The Boring Company begins", Musk said in a photo caption of the tunnel's entrance in SpaceX's parking lot along Crenshaw Boulevard.
