The Boring Company has published its tunnel map of Los Angeles

Should Elon Musk's Boring Company ever get the technology and the regulatory approvals in shape to move forward with building a network of tunnels underneath Los Angeles, now we know what that system might look like.

The first route, outlined in red on the Boring Company's tunnel map, is meant to be a proof-of-concept and will not be used for public transportation, says the company.

As learned in April when Musk first showed off the concept behind The Boring Company, the plan for these tunnels is to solve Los Angeles' famous automotive congestion by moving some of the traffic flow below ground. Boring Company's experience is in tunneling, suggesting that it would propose an underground system. "Phase 1 would include the construction of a 6.5-mile proof-of-concept tunnel through Los Angeles and Culver City" reads the tunnel map description on the company's website.

Only upon successful tests of the company's first route by government officials would The Boring Company make it available for public use. But they're not just empty tunnels; instead, a vehicle on the surface would dodge traffic by taking a sort of elevator down, which would then move as a "sled" through the tunnels at speeds of 150 miles per hour.

Taking to Twitter, the entrepreneur said The Boring Company will compete to fund, build, and operate a high-speed Loop from Chicago O'Hare.

Disney is about to purchase Fox for an unprecedented $60 billion
In November, Bloomberg reported that Disney's Parks boss, Bob Chapek, had emerged as a contender. Fox is also in negotiations with Comcast, but the talks with Disney are moving faster.

Blue tunnels are phase 2 of this operation.

"First route will go roughly parallel to the 405 from LAX to 101, with on/offramps every mile or so".

The underground tunnels would allow cars to travel at up to 200 kmph on electric skates, potentially easing up traffic above. The map shows a network of tunnels covering localities in the city, stretching from Sherman Oaks to Long Beach airport.

Phase II is a huge expansion of the tunnel system and is simply a concept right now with no "finalized alignment".

The second route would be developed in cooperation with Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles, city governments in the greater Los Angeles area, and the general public, says the company.
