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.

It shows the sled whizzing along in the dark, and yes, the speed at which it's going might indeed make you feel like you're on some sort of fairground ride. Via Instagram in a series of posts, the billionaire entrepreneur provided details about his plan Boring Co., which he formed after getting sick and exhausted of Los Angeles's notorious traffic jams.

Let's talk plans. Must's initial loop would consist of five stops: Culver City, Los Angeles International Airport, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, and Westwood.

The CEO posted the video to Instagram. Such is the case with The Boring Company's task of creating an ultra-fast transport tunnel under the streets of Los Angeles.

The Boring Company is one of several companies now led by Musk.

Recall that in late April, Musk demonstrated the concept of high-speed tunnel.
