The Boring Company’s tunnel boring machine is nearly complete with the first half of the dual tunnel people mover system servicing the Las Vegas Convention Center. The secretive tunnel project is reported to cost $52.5M and feature self-driving vehicles utilizing the Tesla chassis. The largest vehicle will fit 16 people and multiple vehicles can be platooned to load and travel together much like a conventional light rail or subway system but without the connections. Once the TBM finished the first bore, it will be disassembled and brought back to the starting point to excavate the second tunnel. The entire project is supposed to be online for the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
