Elon Musk Unveils His Boring Company's First Tunnel On Instagram”

But transportation engineers have doubts about the feasibility of Musk's tunnel vision, and apart from benefiting the tunnel users, how much it would reduce traffic and improve transit overall. It's not boring at all.

These latest updates are all a glimpse of the ongoing processes bringing the first tunnel of the network, which he hopes will eventually cover all of greater LA, to life. Of course, the video Musk shared was entirely computer generated and seemed like something out of a science-fiction movie, but he's already making progress. He posted a video of a skate at work. That was quickly followed by a short video of Elon's first boring machine being brought up to speed for the first time.

It's interesting because of the caption: "First tunnel for The Boring Company begins".

He posted a photo Friday morning of a SpaceX pet snail living inside a pineapple-shaped container that he had described as being 14 times faster than current tunnel-digging equipment. He says the machine will be "a few hundred feet long when complete".

Plans for the first tunnelling routes were then revealed by Musk.

The Boring machine segments of Godot named tunnel drill have been lowered into the starter tunnel and is going through final assembly.

His plan includes platforms that act like elevators carrying the cars to an underground series of tunnels. To that end, Musk claims the tunnel will allow travel between the L.A. neighborhood of Westwood and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in only five minutes. "Planning to jack this up by a factor of ten" reads a Tweet by Musk which speaks to one of the goals set for The Boring Company.
