Elon Musk’s boring company’s tunnel system shuttling under the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) may not be able to deliver more people as originally promised. < / P > < p > the reason for this is not technology – it’s fire regulations. At one of the three stations of the tunnel network, the convention center loop, its waiting and alighting areas are fixed at 800 passengers per hour. If all three sites had similar restrictions, according to techcrunch, the system would carry only a quarter of its promised traffic per hour. It is not clear what the 800 passenger limit may be implemented, as the plan does not include any revolving doors or barriers that will help control passenger flow. < / P > < p > If boring can’t actually carry as many people on the conference center loop as promised, there will be financial consequences. It could miss more than $13 million in construction budgets. According to techcrunch, it will also fine $300000 for each trade show because it can’t transport an average of 3960 passengers per hour in 13 hours and could face a maximum fine of $4.5 million. < / P > < p > the conference center loop is also behind schedule. According to the documents, boring originally planned to complete the system by October 1, which would allow the conference center loop to start and run before the consumer electronics show in 2021 (although that conference can only be held online now). Now, according to Musk’s tweet on October 14, the loop will open “perhaps in a month or so.”. Boring completed the tunnel excavation of the circle line of the conference center in May. < / P > < p > according to the project website, passengers on the Las Vegas loop will take Tesla Model x, model 3 and modified model 3, which can accommodate up to 16 passengers at a time, and they will travel through the tunnel at a maximum speed of 155 mph. Boring first released a version of its tunnel system in December 2018. Spontaneous combustion at a Guangzhou Motor vehicle intersection and other traffic lights in Shenzhen
