Elon Musk has disclosed his latest innovation — an underground tunnel for automobiles that seeks to tackle traffic congestion in Los Angeles.
The new tunnel has been called the O’Leary Station by Musk’s Boring Company, and it features a wall-less lift, which lowers the electric cars 30ft below the surface.
Describing the innovation, Musk said that it was ‘a eureka moment,’ and it was going to work ‘damn well.’
