Elon Musk Says Construction of Hyperloop Will Start
The hyperloop construction will soon be underway. This is according to a tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. He said that his Boring Company would “attempt to build a working Hyperloop.”
CleanTechnica journalist Johnna Crider made the request in a tweet about the world’s worst traffic cities. Musk and Crider, in response to a post about the world’s most congested cities, stated that tunnels might be part of the solution.
Hyperloop is a system of transport that uses low-pressure tubes to send capsules carrying people or cargo at high speeds. The concept was first proposed by Musk in a 2013 white paper.
If successful, the Boring Company’s Hyperloop would be the first working example of the transport system. It could potentially revolutionize travel between cities that are less than 2000 miles apart.
The test build for this construction took place in 2017. The Boring Company completed a 1.8-kilometer (1.1-mile) research tunnel in Hawthorne, California.
In March, the company completed a 2.7-kilometer (1.7-mile) test tunnel under the Las Vegas Convention Center. A connection to Las Vegas Resorts World is due for delivery in the second quarter of this year. The connection is part of a fully-fledged Las Vegas Loop, which is set to include extensions to Las Vegas’ airport and stadium, as well as the resorts on The Strip.
The Boring Company has also been working on a project to connect Washington, D.C., and New York City. The company is one of four finalists in the competition to build a high-speed transit system between the two cities.
The Boring Company has not yet released an estimated cost for the Hyperloop project. However, it is likely to be expensive. Hyperloop technology is sure to revolutionize the state of transportation, making it faster and more efficient. We will be following his story closely to see the progress of this amazing project.
