From the man who sold flamethrowers, plays with huge LEGO brick, and build fire-breathing dragons in his spare time comes a piece of news that will probably put a smile on all train commuters. In a recent Twitter post, Elon Musk announced that the Lost Angeles tunnel running through Los Angeles is only a couple of months away from being completed.
Elon Musk Offers Free Rides to All Los Angeles Residents
To celebrate the soon-to-be-opened underground railway, Elon Musk, the man behind SpaceX and Tesla, recently tweeted that his Boring Company’s project has entered the final stage.
More than that, according to Musk’s post, the company is just waiting for the final regulatory approval so that they can put the finishing touch on this project.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Boring Company’s underground railway plan, here’s a short recap.
Back in 2016, Musk tweeted that he’s very disappointed by the city’s underground infrastructure and waiting times.
Furthermore, Musk vowed to ‘unsnarl’ Los Angeles’ problematic underground transportation by digging a 2.7-mile-long tunnel that will run through West Los Angeles.
Of course, if anyone other than Musk would have made similar claims, no one would actually put too much stock into it.
But considering that this is coming from the man who sold flamethrowers because he was getting bored, everyone expects him to deliver. And he didn’t disappoint.
After two years of digging and more digging, the Boring Company’s CEO announced that the tunnel is almost ready and should go live in a couple of months.
To this end, he invited all Los Angeles residents to try out the railway for free upon completion.
According to Musk’s schematics, the tunnel should run parallel to the Sepulveda Boulevard and continue to the Washington Boulevard. There will be no stations along the way, which means that LA residents will be able to traverse the west side of the city in no time.
