The Boring company was permitted to dig a tunnel in Los Angeles and Maryland and is working to get permission for a New York to DC tunnel.
Elon Musk says traffic jams will be eliminated with multi-level tunnel networks for cars. The tunnels could also be used for Hyperloop transportation.
Musk spends only two or three percent of his time to the Boring company. It is a hobby. It is nevertheless making good progress.
A snail can currently travel 14 times faster than a tunnel boring machine and a preliminary goal will be for the Boring Company tunneling machine to catch up to the snail.
