California: Lawsuit Filed to Stop Elon Musk’s Boring Company Tunnel Under LA

Breitbart CA: Neighborhood groups filed a lawsuit to stop the City of Los Angeles’ fast-tracking an environmental exemption ‘The Boring Company’ hyperloop tunnel under the city.

The lawsuit is in response to the L.A. City Council’s Public Works Committee unanimously approving an April 18 motion to exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act review of the first “proof of concept” section of a private 2.7-mile tunnel to speed cars and people under Sepulveda Boulevard between West L.A. and Culver City.

CEO Elon Musk has been publicizing a cool Instagram video that has already received over 2.5 million views, featuring the first tunnel the Boring Company finished building under Hawthorne. Musk promises that when the Boring Company receives regulatory approvals within two months, the public will be able to take free rides.  more here

  1. I’m all for new technology and for making mass transit available to all, however there are a score or so of Faults under Los Angeles. And when they get done boring they will soon be retrofitting, due to shifts in the soil.
    Isn’t it easier to build an elevated tube?

  2. Putting the Metro rail underground in some areas was costly enough. Of course Elon claims that his technology will be much cheaper, but the reality is that there just isn’t available space underground. And Elon’s claims often conflict with reality.

  3. As far back as the 1940’s, there were plans to run a monorail along the middle of the then-new freeways. Whatever happened to that idea?

  4. When they lie in bed they’ve stopped denying they are hearing that low frequency hum thrumming. It’s coming. Audible tremors. Electricity. It’s in the Air. They taste it on their tongues.

  5. There are plenty of reasons to question the safety and efficacy of putting “undergrounds” in Los Angeles due to the geology of the region.
    As for Elon Musk…’s not HIS money being spent on this. It’s OPM…
    Other Peoples Money. Just like it’s OPM that is being flushed at the Tesla plants.
