Elon Musk’s Boring Company is ready for start up the engines on the tunnelling project for Las Vegas Convention Center’s underground people mover project. It is Musk’s company’s first commercial project and one that will see an innovative transportation system built that will whisk delegates across LVCC’s 200-acre campus in around a minute.
The Boring Machine is currently around 14 metres below ground and set to beginning drilling later this month.
The US$52.5m underground people mover will include three passenger stations connecting the existing 300,000sqm of convention space with the LVCC’s new 130,000sqm West Hall currently under construction, part of a US$1.52bn expansion and renovation.
When completed in January 2021, the underground people mover will be comprised of two vehicular tunnels with an expected total length of approximately one mile each.
The system will have the potential to expand and link key visitor attractions throughout Las Vegas including Downtown Las Vegas, Las Vegas Boulevard Resort Corridor, McCarran International Airport and beyond.
