Elon Musk and his tunnel-carving operation, The Boring Company, have cut their first segment in Musk’s aim to build intricate underground roadway systems beneath the current surface infrastructure of Los Angeles. It’s unknown where the segment was cut, or if the promising negotiations with Mayor Eric Garcetti have followed through, but it was strictly required to get permission before digging under city soil. The company has cut tunnels in tests in the parking lot of Musk’s aerospace company, SpaceX, but there has not been any conversation of Musk getting permission to begin digging outside of his own property.

The Boring Company’s tunnels are expected to haul cars, bikes and pedestrians on electric sleds at up to 125 miles per hour, according to a concept video released in April. Ultimately, the tunnels will shrink half-hour commutes aboveground to minute-long trips.

No longer waiting for Godot. It has begun boring and just completed the first segment of tunnel in LA.
