Elon has tweeted that Boring Company starts digging Vegas tunnel in 2 months. They aiming to finish by end of 2019. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority approved a $48.6 million contract with the Boring Company, Elon Musk’s tunneling venture. The Boring Company’s underground people mover, the LVCC Loop, will consist of two tunnels for vehicles and three stations, as well as a pedestrian tunnel.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Board of Directors approved a recommendation to select Elon Musk’s The Boring Company (TBC) to design, construct and operate a people mover for the Las Vegas Convention Center via a loop of underground express-route tunnels that could carry passengers in autonomous electric vehicles at high speeds. Elon Musk has tweeted that the two-mile long tunnel and people mover can be operational by the end of the year. Elon’s Boring Company (TBC) and the LVCVA have determined specific design, construction and operational plans and final approval has been reached by the LVCVA Board. TBC’s existing proposal indicates the underground loop system offers reduced total costs, less disruption to pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and faster construction time than traditional ground or above-ground options. The loop will be designed to meet the full spectrum of ridership needs, including demands from future expansions, with a potential capacity of up to 11,000 passengers per hour. The project eventually could connect Downtown, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Las Vegas Boulevard Resort Corridor, McCarran International Airport and beyond.
