Elon Musk will build an underground transportation system in Florida

Elon Musk, a tunnel boring company, Boring Company has applied for an underground transportation system between the city center and the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This information was reported personally by the mayor of the city.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean J. Trantalis said “this could be a really innovative way to reduce traffic congestion,” and added that other firms have 45 days to submit competing bids.

In June, the Boring Company opened its first commercial tunnel in Las Vegas to transport visitors, built under the Las Vegas Convention Center. At the time of the announcement, a speed of up to 240 km / h was promised. The Boring Company said the tunnels turn a 45-minute walk into a two-minute ride. However, in fact, people are driven at a speed of 40-60 km / h. Therefore, as a result, cars pass the 1.2 km tunnel 3-4 times longer than previously expected.

Elon Musk complained on Twitter in December 2016 that Los Angeles traffic was “driving him crazy,” stating that he was going to “build a tunneling machine and just start digging.” Musk said earlier this year that the Miami tunnel project, which was previously estimated at $ 1 billion, could be completed for about $ 30 million in six months.
