Elon Musk says first tunnel is almost done, opens December 10: tweet

Posting on Twitter on Sunday night, the Boring Company founder and CEO announced the first test tunnel of the ambitious ultra-high-speed hyperloop project in Los Angeles will be open for public rides on December 11.

If successful, the tunnel would demonstrate the viability of Musk's plans to build a new type of high-speed public transportation system whose station elevators could be built into a city's existing infrastructure.

While the trial tunnel - which begins on the site of Musk's rocket company SpaceX in Hawthorne, California - injects a dose of realism to his vision of a hyper-fast underground system, key questions remain.

Originally called a test tunnel, Musk said Sunday on Twitter that it'll soon be ready for prime time.

The Boring Company's website says the tunnel runs from SpaceX's parking lot east of Crenshaw Boulevard and south of 120th Street, then turns west under 120th Street, and remains underground along 120th Street for 2 miles.

He added the shuttles themselves will have a top speed of 155 miles per hour inside the tunnel, surpassing the results of an earlier electric sled test which reached 125 miles per hour.

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has said the first testing tunnel of his Hyperloop transport system is nearly fully completed, and will be open to the public later this year. One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the District of Columbia to NY in under 30 minutes.

In addition to this tunnel, the Boring Company is also working an a tunnel between Washington DC and NY.

Musk is somewhat famed for missing deadlines. "I think real", Musk replied.
