Elon Musk showed the design of The Boring Company tunnel near Las VegasJuly 23, 2020
The first stage of the construction of an underground car tunnel near Las Vegas, designed and built by the forces of The Boring Company founded by Elon Musk, took place earlier this year. Since then, engineers, planners and designers have not stopped working on a new type of transport communication, and recently the head of the company opened the veil of secrecy over an ambitious project and showed what the “metro of the future” will look like.
A detailed render revealing the design of the “launch pad” of the new tunnel, the businessman posted on his Twitter. The so-called “private public transport” means placing several Tesla electric cars within one station, which, after waiting for a special “tractor”, will be moved to their destination. Such a solution, according to the idea of the company, should significantly relieve the saturated traffic of megacities.
It should be noted that the possibility of using such tunnels will be available only to those car owners who install special wheel adapters, the estimated cost of which will not exceed $ 300. Earlier, Musk has repeatedly stated that public transport is a relic that has no place in the 21st century. According to the signature to the published render, the opening of the underground car station with the original interior will take place in the near future.
