The Brentwood Residents Coalition and the Sunset Coalition are suing Los Angeles, claiming that the tunnel is really part of a planned transit system and should therefore the city should not have granted it exemption from standard environmental reviews.
According to the city, the proposed tunnel would begin with the entry/exit point at 2352-6 Sepulveda Boulevard, north of West Pico Boulevard, in West Los Angeles.
On Thursday night at 7 p.m.in Los Angeles, those lucky enough to have snapped up free tickets early will be able to see Elon Musk speaking at the Leo Baeck Temple and discussing The Boring Company's tunneling and hyperloop plans for the city.
The West L.A. tunnel is the latest project Boring has undertaken after quietly digging a slightly shorter tunnel underneath tiny neighboring municipality of Hawthorne, where SpaceX and Boring are both headquartered.
Davis said Musk has challenged his team to match the digging pace of a snail (0.03 MPH), and get up to 1/10th of the average walking speed of a human at about 0.3 miles per hour - compared to its current top speed of about 0.003 miles per hour. They would be dug at a minimum of 30 feet to 60 feet underground, way below utilities. It's part of Musk's effort to get city agencies on board with the project, which is already facing some court challenges from two neighborhood organizations.
SpaceX and The Boring Company CEO Elon Musk has for the first time revealed his concept for a personalised mass transit system or "Loop" that will carry 16 people and travel at 240 km per hour for a fare of just $1.
PayPal agrees to buy Sweden's iZettle in US$2.2b deal
Morgan Securities plc is acting as sole financial adviser to iZettle, while Gernandt & Danielsson is acting as its legal adviser. USA -based PayPal already operates in more than 200 countries around the world but is working to expand its offerings.
In 2017, The Boring Company received an approval to build a Hyperloop network between Washington, D.C. and NY. "We can actually sell the bricks at like 10 cents a brick", Musk said. At the beginning of the event, the billionaire entrepreneur, who also helms Tesla and SpaceX, lamented how congested road traffic is in LA, specifically on Interstate 405, one of the most highly trafficked freeways in the US.
It is unknown how fast the "electric skates" will go during tests on the public.
Part of the event was created to put to rest concerns that the public wouldn't be disrupted by the project.
"You won't hear us, you won't feel us, you won't even know we exist", Davis said.
"We're not suggesting this to the exclusion of other approaches but it's the one that we think would work and is worth trying", he said.
