Elon Musk, the American businessman and billionaire who co-founded SpaceX and Tesla, has been licensed to build the 46.6-kilometer tunnel under Las Vegas.
according toBritish newspaper “Daily Mail” It can transport up to 57,000 passengers per hour to casinos and the city, to Tesla cars, to the city’s airport and to the Raiders football stadium.
According to the British newspaper, SpaceX Boring will run a smaller version of the Vegas Loop system below the Las Vegas Convention Center, which opened earlier this year.
The concept includes regular Tesla vehicles driven by people running through the tunnel at a speed of just 35 miles per hour, instead of cars speeding by from one place to another.
However, a large city-wide tunnel development proposed by Boring in December 2020 has now been approved by Las Vegas officials.
The tunnel will consist of 51 stations within a 29-mile network, each of which will require special permits before it can be developed, and will require obtaining a special concession agreement approved by the Boring Las Vegas City before work can begin. .
Boring President Steve Davis said the system would be built in stages and would open five to 10 stations in the first six months of construction, adding that 15-20 stations would be added each year until completion.
Elon Musk’s company expects the five – mile journey from the airport to the convention center to take about 5 minutes and $ 10, while the 3.6 – mile journey from the center to Riders Stadium will cost about 4 minutes and $ 6.
Also, unlike the “Daily Mail” subway, the “Vegas Loop” will be a “point-to-point” system where passengers do not have to stop at every station on the way and can pick them up. Directly to where they want to go without stopping ..
