Elon’s Underground Sled in Los Angeles

Elon Musk is already breaking ground on his Los Angeles tunnel network, revealing on Friday a new set of photos and videos from inside his first tunnel.

The Tesla (TSLA) founder is on a mission to build a network of tunnels under Los Angeles to alleviate the city’s traffic problems. During a recent TED Talk conference, Musk provided new details about the tunnels, which are designed to transport cars on an electrified platform at 125 miles per hour.

The photos, posted on Instagram, show a starting tunnel and staging area built by The Boring Company on SpaceX’s property. Musk also published a video showing a test run of an electric “sled.”

Musk would need to obtain permits from Los Angeles to build tunnels under the city.
