The illustrious Elon Musk may be under fire for a lot of things he has. Then again, his boring, that is, drilling, dreams to bore tunnels underneath LA has not been a fair share of controversy and opposition. That's not enough, however, to postpone or cancel the Boring Company's grand public opening of its first LA tunnel next month. Unless, of course, some litigation gets in the way.
Musk took to his favorite social media channel on both sides of the tunnel, describing the 2-mile (over 3 kilometers) underground cylinder as "disturbingly long". Then again, that's probably how it would feel like if you walked the entire length of the tunnel on foot like he did.
Of course, the tunnel is not intended for pedestrians and is designed to carry vehicles and people on electric skates or shuttles. It seems like it will feel like it opens up for public use.
That will happen with a party on December 10, with free rides being offered to the public the next day. Passengers want to have their own how to get back if they need to do so. The tunnel is, after all, described as "one-dimensional", which is probably Musk's way of saying it's a one-way ride.
