The multibillionaire has received the approval of the city of Las Vegas to develop a network of underground tunnels "Vegas Loops"

Elon Musk implements a grandiose project Vegas Loop

Elon Musk has struck a deal to build his network of tunnels under the city that never sleeps to transport people seamlessly using Tesla's automatic electric vehicles. This earned the Vegas Loop project the nickname "Tesla in the Tunnels".

In just three years, about 47 kilometers of tunnels will be dug. The project envisions 51 stations and ultimately 57,000 users per hour. This is a great way to deal with heavy traffic and congested transport.

The idea is simple: traffic is congested, due to the lack of flying cars, the only way to facilitate it is to suggest another route, underground. In theory, at the whim of Elon Musk at the end of 2016, The Boring Company was created for this purpose: to dig tunnels so that people can use fully automated Tesla cars, like traveling on a tram or subway. Except that users do not need to share space with other passengers, and the car does not stop at all stations.

Tesla in fully automatic mode either enters the tunnel directly, or in order to get to the tunnel, you need something like an elevator.

The first line already exists: it connects three stations to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), which is almost 3 km long. It took a year to build these two tunnels and three stations (including one underground).
