Elon Musk gets permit to work on hyperloop in DC

Elon Musk gets permit to work on hyperloop in DC

The plans are for the route to incorporate four cities, starting in Washington D.C. stopping in Baltimore and Philadelphia before terminating in New York City. Stations in a Loop or Hyperloop system are small in size and widely distributed in a network.

Elon Musk's company, The Boring Company, has received preliminary approval to begin digging an underground tunnel beneath Washington, D.C.

For example, Musk once tweeted his frustration with LA traffic, which soon mutated into an idea for "The Boring Company" - a legitimate venture that initially planned to bore a series of tunnels beneath the surface of LA, and has since branched out into selling novelty hats and flamethrowers. Estimates released by The Boring Company on the basis of preliminary tests and projects state that the completed Hyperloop project could complete travel time between NY and Washington D.C.to 29 minutes, down from the almost four hours it takes with current means of transport.

Apart from this, The Boring Co.'s presentation and proposal to the city council of Culver City also ended in a stalemate, after lawmakers and residents aired their opposition and reservations about the startup's tunneling project.

After receiving "verbal approval" last July, Musk's The Boring Company has received a permit for exploratory work in the District of Colombia.

But, Governor Hogan's support marks the first step in the process.

Hyperloop is a proposed method of travel that would transport people at roughly 700mph between distant locations.

There are now a number of firms vying to bring the technology to life, including Elon Musk himself, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, and Virgin Hyperloop One.

If the plan comes to life, Musk's East Coast Hyperloop tunnel would be far longer than the current record holder, the Gotthard Base Tunnel, a railway line that runs through the Swiss Alps and opened in 2016, measuring 35.5 miles.

The permit will allow Musk's tunnelling firm to perform, as The Washington Post reports, "some preparatory and excavation work" in a fenced-off vehicle park in the city's NoMa district.
