Our favorite celebrity CEO is trying to distract again.
There is no tunnel.
There will be no service ready to go on the day he says.
There is no one even working on it.
Drive by the place it is supposed to happen and there is nothing going on.
Plans offer a peek into Elon Musk’s tunnel in Hawthorne, including an elevator hidden in a garage
When Elon Musk’s tunneling firm began digging in Hawthorne last year, the construction site next to SpaceX headquarters was barely noticeable, sandwiched between a home improvement store and a parking garage.
The engineers at work on the Boring Co.’s tunnel, which now runs for a mile beneath city streets, have signaled that they intend to finish as they started: away from the public eye.
But documents submitted to city officials by Musk’s tunneling company offer a sneak peek at the company’s plans.
The most futuristic is a blueprint for a steel elevator shaft inside the garage of a shabby house near the Hawthorne Municipal Airport that would connect with the test tunnel 40 feet below.
“We’ll be completely contained within the garage,” Boring Co. employee Brett Horton told officials last month when the project received approval from the Hawthorne City Council. “You won’t be able to see or hear it.” – Source
