musk gets conditional approval to bore tunnel

by:Gewinn     2019-09-10
The Maryland Department of Transport has given conditional approval for the construction of a tunnel from Baltimore to Washington, which has greatly promoted-
Or hype, according to the point-
Entrepreneur Elon Musk\'s plan to build a supermarkethigh-
High speed transportation system.
The agency said Musk\'s Boring Company could dig miles of tunnels under the National Highway for privately financed supertrains.
Soon the government tweeted.
Larry Hogan, R. , he filmed a tunnel builder who supported the emergence of the \"fast power transport to MD-
Connecting Baltimore City to Washington, D. C. C.
\"Transport experts and engineers have only one American weight left. S.
Officials refer to Musk and his latest grand plan as \"the ratio of Vision/rivers and lakes \".
Is this the beginning of glory?
Hogan spokesman Doug Mayer said that or the wonderful marketing hypeThe project will start near Fort Myers in Anne Arundel County.
The tunnel, about 10 miles long, will be in the state.
Ownership of Interstate 295 Baltimore
Washington Avenue, he said.
\"This is called a utility license.
\"This is all they need to dig,\" Mayer said . \".
\"This is a private company with private financing.
The cost of the country will be very limited, if any.
During the licensing process, the state has been working with them for several months.
\"The idea of digging a long tunnel --
About 35 miles from Penn Station to Union Station, although the actual route has not yet been revealed --is not far-
Mike Mooney says he is a tunnel professor at the Colorado School of Mines.
\"This is not outside the realm.
Of course, this is conceivable. \"Said Mooney.
\"Is this a big project? \" he added ? \".
But that\'s American. S.
Five miles is considered a high-end standard.
\"This is not a big global project.
\"Technology has greatly improved tunnel construction, and in China\'s big cities, or Doha, Qatar\'s capital, subways, road tunnels and other projects may dig 50 or even 100 miles within 5 miles --
One year, Mooney said.
He added that the tunnel drill can pass through the earth, sometimes dozens of feet below the surface, leaving a cement stand that will not cause any damage to the road or building above it. So Washington-
With the Musk thick-skinned to will this boring of the company named for every day 100 or 150 feet the following area commute may soon will in traffic in slow forward or, if Musk promises a technical upgrade to the mining process, it may be faster.
More expensive than ground transportation.
So anything that can bring innovation to reduce costs is a good thing, \"Mooney said.
But there are still costs.
Build the project and use the system that will work by shooting pods in a vacuum
High-speed sealed tube. Jose Gomez-
Abbanes, a professor of urban planning at Harvard Kennedy College, said he thought he was a skeptical camp, but he did not rule out Musk, who has succeeded in the past long competition.
\"I don\'t understand why it\'s easier to run so fast in the tube than in the air,\" Gomez-Ibanez says.
\"There is a reason for the train to lose to the plane at a further distance, in part because it is difficult to maintain a truly high-quality right of way,\" in this case, a closed vacuum tunnel.
\"You have to respect this guy because he does have a record in creating what others suspect is happening,\" Gomez-
Ipanez talked about Musk, a pioneer in electric vehicles and a rocket maker.
But \"the reality of so many infrastructure\" will provide a major obstacle to the super cycle, he said.
Kevin Chang, an assistant professor and transport engineer at the University of Idaho, said this could translate into a cost that could be \"prohibitive to the public.
Like any mode of transportation, safety issues need to be considered, Zhang said.
\"If there is an accident in the corridor, how can you mitigate the loss of life,\" he said . \".
Still, as an engineer, he was excited about the prospect --
It gives people the freedom to live where they want.
Musk said on Twitter this summer that he had been \"verbally approved\" by the government to build a pod --and-
Subway transportation system, one of his superhigh-speed pod-and-
The subway transportation system, known as the super high-speed rail, can complete the trip from New York to Washington in 29 minutes.
\"I might consider working at one end of the route and living at the other end,\" Chang said . \".
Musk also announced this summer that he had completed the first paragraph of the first tunnel in Los Angeles.
Hyperloop One, another company, is also trying to push the idea forward.
But last week\'s statement left more questions than answers.
Maryland officials were not immediately aware of what was involved in conditional approval and whether any environmental review was required for the project.
Mayer referred questions about the construction schedule, cost, and funding sources to the Boring Company, which declined to answer them, relying instead on a brief statement issued by the state.
\"Boring companies want to thank Maryland, Washington, D. C. C.
The White House innovation office supports them, \"the company said.
President Donald Trump appointed his son during the Marchin-
Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the leadership office.
A White House spokesman said the innovation office is \"a guide to the process and helps with meetings and conference calls in due course\" to advance the broader Hyperloop project.
As for the District of Columbia, Terry Owens, spokesman for the District Transport Department, said: \"We have spoken to the Musk people. . . .
So far, we are trying to understand the concept better.
