Musk says LA Hyperloop tunnel to be unveiled December 10

Taking to Twitter, the billionaire SpaceX founder said his underground tunnel for the project "is nearly done" and will be ready on December 10.

In another tweeted response, Musk said the test tunnel has a top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers).

Elon Musk's Hyperloop ultra high-speed transport system will be unveiled in Los Angeles in early December with free test rides to the public, the entrepreneur announced.

Entrepreneur Elon Musk has said the first testing tunnel of his Hyperloop transport system is nearly fully completed, and will be open to the public later this year.

The tunnel beneath the L.A. suburb of Hawthorne acts as a proof of concept for the Boring Company's proposed loop system.

Sadio Mane undergoes hand surgery
Huddersfield boss David Wagner celebrates his 47th birthday on Friday but Reds boss Klopp will not be giving him a gift. What it is exactly is not too important. "It's all good, he has no problems with that anymore".

Musk's goal in designing an underground tunnel system is to "solve the problem of soul-destroying traffic", the Boring Co. says on its website.

The tunnel runs about 2 miles under the streets of Hawthorne, where Musk's SpaceX headquarters is located. One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the District to NY in under 30 minutes.

The trial tunnel will have a top speed of 155 miles per hour, according to the billionaire-entrepreneur, surpassing the 125 mph traveled by an electric sled in a video of a test run posted in May past year.

Musk has a reputation for often missing his own timelines, which prompted someone on Twitter to ask if the December 10 date is "in real time or Elon time?"
