TechRadar has reported that Elon Musk’s passion for tunnels is surprisingly infectious, with the tech entrepreneur revealing that he’s recently had “promising conversations” with the mayor of Los Angeles to bring The Boring Company’s underground traffic solution to the city. In a tweet, Musk said that his planned network of tunnels would be able to “carry cars, bikes and pedestrians” in an attempt to reduce overground congestion. He did, however, add that at the moment securing the permits required to build such an extensive underground network would be more difficult than developing the technology.
To back up his assertion that Eric Garcetti is interested in the idea, Musk linked a recent interview the mayor had on ABC where he mentioned Musk’s tunneling technology as a means of creating a quick and direct line to the city’s airport.
