This Crazy Idea Could Turn a 60 Minute Commute into a Ten Minute One!
Improving Wigan’s Roads?
Would you like to turn a 60 minute traffic-ridden drive into a smooth 10 minute one?
That’s what Elon Musk aims to do, but his proposed methods are … a little out there.
Musk and his Boring Company (there’s a joke in there somewhere) think that creating up to 40 layers of traffic tunnels under large cities like LA will reduce congestion.
Now, before you start arguing about how layering 40 tunnels under a city is nigh-on impossible, Mr Musk hasn’t finished yet.
His tunnels will be fully automated. You will drive your car onto a little elevator doo-dad scattered around the city. This elevator doo-dad will drop you into one of these tunnels, where your car will be whizzed along a track by another doo-dad, without you having to do any driving at all.
Here is a video that explains his vision in more detail: https://youtu.be/u5V_VzRrSBI
Whilst we all want less traffic, and less pollution, I’m not sure about sci-fi tunnels being the answer. Personally, I think that buying used cars is much better way, and also much more in reach of, well, everyone that isn’t Elon Musk.
