In the beginning of the year at the presentation contest of cabins for Hyperloop Musk said that the construction of the tunnels is a simple and obvious solution that does not require much effort. "Tunnels in cities could significantly reduce congestion. If you build 30 levels of the tunnels, it is possible to completely solve the problem of traffic jams in cities with high traffic density," said Musk.
