California test tunnel nearly finished, Elon Musk says

California test tunnel nearly finished, Elon Musk says

Elon Musk announced on his Twitter page the launch date of his high-speed underground tunnel transportation system - the event is said to be followed up by a day of free rides for the public.

Elon Musk tweeted Sunday that his underground transportation project will open its first test tunnel in December in Hawthorne, Calif.

Manufactured under his firm Boring Co., Hyperloop is a network of high-speed transit tunnels created to maximise the efficiency of public transport at a lowered cost.


The tunnel starts in the SpaceX parking lot and then turns west under 120th Street. This time around, he tweeted about Bitcoin and Twitter believed his account had been hacked and made a decision to block it.

But documents submitted to city officials by Musk's tunneling company offer a sneak peek at the company's plans.

One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the United States capital - the District of Columbia, to NY in under 30 minutes.


The Boring Company's transit tunnel works by moving platforms along electric "skates" at 155mph.

While Musk is known for his towering ambition and zealous breakthroughs, the tech billionaire also has a reputation for over promising on meeting benchmarks.

Elon Musk speaks in Hawthorne, Calif., on September 17.


"Dec 10 in real time or Elon time?" one Twitter user asked Musk about the test tunnel unveiling. The tech tycoon seems to have agreed to the thought and replied: "That is correct".
