While the billionaire’s company might have achieved a milestone of engineering as it is the first mile-long tunnel to be built underneath Las Vegas with its opening attracted guests ranging from the mayor of Miami to the Queen of Instagram herself Kylie Jenner, but despite this and the bright colour changing lights, is it just a tunnel...
A tunnel that costs at least $5 to drive through for a whopping distance of 1 mile, from one end to the Las Vegas Convention Centre to the other. There are plans to extend the tunnel to other parts of the city, reducing travel time across the city.
People have wondered why this infrastructure project did not seek to put in an underground train network as that would be able to carry more people and it posed some concerns over health and safety.
I feel like I'm going insane. this is literally just a tunnel, nothing else. its a tunnel you drive through that's… https://t.co/p4omgxkypN
It is also a disappointing outcome seeing as The Boring Company was launched in 2018 with all the bells and whistles, singing about how they intended to build a complex network of tunnels all over the world, eradicating traffic congestion.
