Tesla teaches his project for Las Vegas traffic

Members of the local Las Vegas press were invited to an exclusive presentation of the Tesla project for vehicular traffic in the city.

It is basically an innovative transport system with underground tunnels. The project in total had a cost of $ 52 million dollars.

The tunnel is twelve meters underground, is about 2.4 kilometers long and has three stops around the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Central Station -which is underground-, as well as the West Station and the South Station (both by on earth).

Several of the journalists who were part of the presentation shared videos where it is possible to appreciate how this innovative system would work.

Of course, it should be mentioned that many of those who remained expectant regarding this system have suffered several disappointments, at least if we stop at the shared records.

Journalist Mick Akers of the Review Journal, shared a video showing a Tesla vehicle driven by a person at a maximum speed of 56 kilometers per hour, according to the same media.

Reporters who attended also complained, as they did not receive much new information, even though it had been anticipated as an exclusive event for the Las Vegas media.

At full capacity the Boring Company’s Convention Center Loop can transport 4,400 people per hour in its 62 vehicles fleet. This June’s World of Concrete show will be its first big test. #vegas #boringcompany #elonmusk

“We have been able to see a lot on this tour. Hell, I’m in a Tesla right now going through the tunnel, “said reporter James Schaeffer.

“But there are some details that we are not so sure about … that we are still finding out more about, such as the times of loading and waiting procedures, and about the 16-passenger vehicles that will pass through these tunnels,” he added in relation to the Elon Musk’s premature announcement about this system where, according to him, each vehicle could carry more than a dozen people inside and that everything would be autonomous.

Apparently none of this is automatic as of yet. Thus, the event open to the local press left more doubts than certainties regarding this promising system.
