Musk said the first two tunnel segments would serve as proof-of-concept sites to demonstrate ideas for a traffic-easing network of subterranean tubes whisking passenger-carrying "pods" and individual cars from place to place at high speeds.
"If you build a tunnel in L.A., you can build one anywhere", Musk said, referring to the various challenges the test tunnel would need to overcome in the city, including seismic conditions, methane gas, oil fields, and regulations. He added he has every intent of submitting to a full environmental study for the tunnel network as a whole when the time comes.

It is unknown how fast the "electric skates" will go during tests on the public.
In October 2017, Musk shared the first image of the Boring Company's test tunnel under SpaceX's headquarters. Musk commented, "we're not suggesting this to the exclusion of other approaches".
The big question is how the Boring Company's pitch will go over with the community in the West L.A. neighborhood where the 2.7-mile Sepulveda Boulevard test tunnel is to be built.
