Boring Company announced the expansion of the tunnels near Las Vegas to the casino (3 photos)


Ilona Mask's company The Boring Company leadsactive work on the creation of the first network of underground transport tunnels under the downtown Las Vegas. The program for the creation of innovative electric transport is carried out in conjunction with local authorities. Recent negotiations with Las Vegas City Hall resulted in Boring's approval of plans to expand the tunnel transport system and build another station at Resorts World Las Vegas.

The Boring Company's original plan wasin creating a 3.2 km (2 mi) ring system of underground tunnels to transport people using Tesla electric vehicles between three stations located in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Musk's ambitions are now spreading to other areas of the city. Casino owners also welcome Boring's commitment to extending the line. In June, Wynn Las Vegas Casino and Resorts World Las Vegas submitted bids for the construction of tunnels connecting their own stops with a loop under construction at the convention center.


Now in early August, the Resorts World Las CasinoVegas, which is in the final stages of construction and will start in summer 2021, has received permission from local authorities to build a branch from the main branch of the Boring tunnels to its own station. Work to connect the casino to the Las Vegas Loop tunnel system will begin at the end of the year.


The Boring Company has already publisheda new tunnel map that marks the first station outside the experimental original loop. In the future, the company plans to continue expanding to other attractions in the Sin City. In addition, Boring still has hope for the development of the tunnel project to the O'Hare airport in Chicago and the construction of an underground road to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
