The Boring Company which belongs to the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk and specializes in building tunnels and other types of infrastructure received its first commercial order worth $48.7 million. This was reported in the company’s press release.
The authorities of Las Vegas concluded a contract with The Boring Company regarding the construction of the tunnel under the Las Vegas Convention Center, called Loop system.
The Loop system will provide for quick and convenient transportation to various parts of the Convention Center. Thus, the Center’s campus with all of its halls and its New Exhibit Hall will be connected underground.
There will be 5 stations, located close to all the important place of the Center. Special electric vehicles (Tesla cars) are going to run between the station, reducing the usual walking time from 15 minutes to only one. Besides its speed, the tunnel will also be noise and weatherproof.
According to Elon Musk, the project could be completed by the end of the year, and the test runs might start as early as next November. If the Loop system proves efficient, such tunnels will expand over to other key locations of Las Vegas.
