Elon Musk, CEO of Boring Company, has informed through a tweet that its first operational tunnel under Las Vegas is almost complete.

“Tunnels under cities with self-driving electric cars will feel like warp drive
First operational tunnel under Vegas almost done
Musk’s Boring Company aims to create an underground traffic system to bypass the on-road traffic. The heavy traffic causes too long traffic jams, and people don’t like it at all. Musk wants to build tunnels to cope with the problem and says he doesn’t like the heavy traffic. The underground traffic system comprises of super safe, earthquake-resistant tunnels, and this is what the Boring Co. does.
Elon Musk has also said that creating multi-level tunnel for trains and cars will solve the traffic problem in large-cities. He showed his concern as virtually every large city on the planet is affected by worsening traffic. The tech billionaire finds the solution of multi-level tunnels worth trying.
Elon Musk Tunnels in Las Vegas
After completing the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop tunnel three months ago, the company is near the completion of its second tunnel in Las Vegas. This tunnel, called Vegas Loop, is almost done, and the company will soon open the tunnels to the public. The tunnels will cut the driving time from the Convention Center in Las Vegas to Mandalay Bay to just three minutes. During the peak hours, the driving time may take up to 30 minutes.
The tunnel will open for the public in January 2021, and, when completed, travelers will get the opportunity to go from one side of the Convention Center to another in Tesla electric vehicles. Tesla Model X and Model 3 electric vehicles, and the Model 3 trams will run through the tunnels to make visitors’ journeys in just 2 minutes.
Steve Hill, LVCVA President, and CEO said that the company, after the completion of the second tunnel, will link the Las Vegas tunnels to its existing tunnels in Los Angeles. It will cut the current driving time of five hours to just two hours.
