Elon Musk’s Las Vegas tunnels put into commercial operation

Published

on

In late May, Elon Musk’s The Boring Company began test operation of the LVCC Loop tunnels built under the Las Vegas Convention Center, and began commercial operation yesterday. The first to experience the LVCC Loop were the participants of the World of Concrete exhibition – this is the first major event that took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tesla Model 3, Model X and Model Y are used to move in tunnels (there are only two of them, the length of each is only 1.2 km, but this is enough to connect different halls of the conference center). Cars move at a speed of 64 km / h and not dispense with driver assistance for safety reasons. But in the future, drivers from LVCC Loop vehicles will disappear, and the cars themselves will go faster – at a speed of 75 km / h. Currently, about 4,400 people per hour can be transported through the tunnels, but in the future the passenger traffic will increase to 5,050 people per hour.
