Elon Musk is getting serious about digging a tunnel under Los Angeles

Posted January 26, 2017

"Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging..." he wrote cryptically Saturday morning. "The Boring Company" is a pretty weird name, even by the tech world's low standards.

In a string of tweets last month, Musk proposed a new tunnel digging venture called "the Boring Company".

Any resulting benefits wouldn't be evident in the latest results, because cancer takes years to develop, Mokdad said. But in rare cases, HPV infections linger for years, and this puts women at risk for cervical cancer .

"Traffic is driving me nuts", he tweeted.

Musk tweeted that digging would start under the SpaceX headquarters in LA "in a month or so".

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has founded companies that build electric cars and send stuff into space. The SpaceX and Telsa founder, known for flashy projects that promise a spacefaring future for humanity, is now talking about building a tunnel from his office to a spot near the Los Angeles airport, LAX. And with Trump's $1 trillion infrastructure plan that looks to rely heavily on private investment, it would seem Musk is the ideal guy for the job to shake up America's roads with tunnels.

Previously, he has commented on the practicality of taking more transportation underground, envisaging greater use of vehicle tunnels to avoid inclement weather and more.

For Dani Murakami of Murray, the event was a wake-up call. "This gives me chills, it nearly brings tears to my eyes", she said. Protesters chanted "Not My President", "Love Trumps Hate" and "Fight Like a Girl".

"This is really a very simple and obvious idea", Musk said. "Its not that hard, but if you have tunnels in cities, it would massively alleviate congestion and you could have tunnels at all different levels; you could probably have 30 layers of tunnels and completely fix the congestion problem in high-density cities". It can cost hundreds of millions of dollars per mile. It likely has nothing to do with any other major projects like Hyperloop, in which Musk no longer has financial interests. While it's unclear if Amazon will actually follow on the plans, Musk isn't the only billionaire with tunnels on his mind.
