Musk’s Boring Company Wants To Dig A Tunnel Under The Tesla Giga Factory Texas

Elon Musk

Tech billionaire Elon Musk’s Boring Company has applied to dig a tunnel under the Tesla Giga factory Texas in Austin, however, it’s unclear what they plan to do with it.

As auto-tech website Electrek reports, The Boring Company has been in discussions with state and municipal governments for a number of projects since moving to Texas, but as far as we know, they have not yet proceeded with any of them. Huh.

Now, the company has applied with the City of Austin to build a tunnel on the Tesla Gigafactory Texas property for the ‘Colorado River Connector Tunnel’ project.

The Report States That the Applicant Has Proposed A Private Access Tunnel with Relevant Improvements

The Boring Company’s main project is its ‘Loop’ in Las Vegas. The Boring Company Loop is a system of tunnels in which Tesla electric vehicles move people between stations to avoid surface traffic.

The company is exploring other projects across the US, but no other major projects have gone ahead.

Since moving to Pflugerville, just outside Austin, The Boring Company has set its vision on projects in Texas, but this is the first time it has moved to a building permit application.
