Elon Musk's D.C. to Baltimore Tunnel Sounds Worse than Pointless

What if I proposed digging two 35-mile tunnels that would begin and end right next to two train stations that currently have service between one another? And this tunnel would be right underneath an existing highway? But this tunnel would be used to skim cars along tracks at speeds no one has achieved yet? And it…Read more...

Tiled tunnel under Belgian river "staggeringly monotonous"

After the delightful wooden elevator down from Antwerp's streets, the 1876-foot pedestrian tunnel under the Scheldt is "staggeringly monotonous," reports Atlas Obscura, but I rather like it. I have one question: what would the diameter of a well-lit circular tunnel like this need to be for its curvature to be imperceptible? Actually, I have another question: What would the diameter of a dimly-lit circular tunnel like this, lined with books, need to be for its curvature to be imperceptible? Ph...

I'm Completely Mesmerized By This Tunnel-Scrubbing Beast of a Machine

With thousands of cars passing through every day, blasting the walls with dirty exhaust, it only makes sense that every once in a while a tunnel needs to be cleaned. But I had no idea there are trucks built specifically for the task, with giant scrubbers attached to robotic arms that can reach every last nook and…Read more...

Mr. Musk’s anti-traffic tunnels

ICMYI (In Case You Missed It) turns out, Elon Musk isn’t joking. The traffic in Los Angeles pushed him to reinvent travel yet again… first with Tesla, second (and more broadly) with SpaceX), now the Boring Company aims at doing something you would expect from an Isaac Asimov novel.The basic plan (as the video shows) is to convert the entire city’s underground into a dizzying network of life-size Hot Wheels tracks that cross, overlap, merge, etc., covering each and every nook and corner of the ...

Creeping Beneath Paris

One Sunday not long ago, on a Paris street that shall remain nameless, I met up with a mustachioed Frenchman we’ll call Gilles. He wore tattered blue coveralls and carried a four-foot-long iron bar. When no one was looking, he pried open a manhole cover, and we disappeared into the underworld. Like almost everyone in Paris, I had visited the catacombs before—at least the public part. You enter over at Denfert-Rochereau (where the original d’enfer part of the name, implying hellishness, earns...

Critics outraged by UK plan to build 1.8 mile tunnel under Stonehenge

One of Britain's most well-known archaeological landmarks could soon have a tunnel carved below it. The government unveiled plans for a 1.8 mile tunnel running under Stonehenge as part of a $2.4 billion infrastructure investment, hoping to slash traffic plaguing the area. But not everyone is happy with the government's plan; some experts believe a tunnel could destroy undiscovered artifacts. The British government is planning a $2.4 billion investment for the country's A303 road, hoping to up...
