A Boring Company, a bull bull Elon Musk, has just signed a $ 48.6 million contract with the city of Las Vegas. The LVCC Loop project will link the new Las Vegas Conference Center pavilion with the other pavilions on the same street.
The Boring Company will be excavating a 1.34 kilometer double underground tunnel which will allow travel around the Conference Center in a minute (walking the same route takes between 15 and 20 minutes). According to Elon Musk, the company will start digging in two months to finish before 2020.
The LVCC Link, approved with 13 votes in favor and one against (Las Vegas mayor, Carolyn Goodman), would open to the public in January 2021, in time for CES, the fair most technology in the world. It is projected that it has three stations to access the underground tunnel.
The Boring Company has offered to expand the Link in the future with a large tunnel that crosses Las Vegas Plot and connects with dozens of stations across the city, which also serves the field. air. These systems would operate at speeds of up to 250 kilometers per hour.

And this is the little tunnel that he exhibited in Los Angeles: t
In March, Virginia sent a committee of transport experts to Los Angeles to look at the tunnel. When they returned home, they gave the authorities a devastating account of what they had seen: t
"Our car is in a tiny tunnel."
"I think there is a lot of showing in all this."
"They've bought a used drilling machine, they've drilled the neighborhood where they have developed SpaceX, they've taken Model 3, they've put track wheels on it and they're moving it through & t The tunnel for 100 kilometers per hour. "
"Nothing is really significant in terms of progress."
The disappointing test of Los Angeles has not prevented city administrators such as Las Vegas. "It's a one-to-kind project," said Bill Noonan, vice president of industry in Las Vegas. "People will come from all over the country to see it," he said.
