Giga Texas May Have a Boring Company Tunnel

It looks like Elon Musk's Boring Company may surely build a tunnel under Tesla Giga Texas. A Twitter user Jack Farrington yesterday asked Elon Musk, "Let’s build tunnels under the Austin factory site." Musk's answer was, "For sure."

Tesmanian's Eva Fox has the details.

The Boring Company is trying to bypass traffic problems in our large cities by creating a system of super-safe earthquake-resistant tunnels under cities. "We should build more tunnels. Put trains in them or cars or whatever, but every large city on Earth is plagued by traffic & it’s getting worse. Multi-level tunnels might solve this, so worth trying," Musk said.

Musk's aspirations were well appreciated by representatives of Las Vegas. They chose The Boring Co. for the design, construction, and management of dual tunnels capable of transporting passengers in small autonomous vehicles. Musk wrote today that the first operational tunnel under Las Vegas is almost ready.

Tesla's CEO aspires to eventually build such a system linking Washington, DC and New York along the busy U.S. Northeast corridor; he has also proposed projects for Chicago and Los Angeles. However, that's not all the interesting news. At the suggestion of one of his fans on Twitter, Musk wrote that The Boring Co. would probably drill such a tunnel under Giga Texas.

It looks like Tesla Giga Texas is going to be super modern, advanced, and friendly to locals. Giga Texas will have "a boardwalk where there'll be a hiking and biking trail. It's going to basically be an ecological paradise. Birds in the trees, butterfly, fish in the stream, and they will be open to the public as well. So not closed and only Tesla," said Musk during the 2Q 2020 Earnings Call.

Also, see how equipment is brought to Giga Berlin's paint shop and installed, as well as why the Tesla Community is wholesome for most, but toxic for some.
