Maybe the Boring Company should take similar approach, getting more entities on board to push for approvals.

I remember posting a year or so ago that cargo was the best application for this technology. You can connect large distribution centers easily, and don’t need all the extra tunnel width for safety and ventilation . And cargo does not get claustrophobic!

Swiss Government is exploring what laws need to be changed to move cargo sous terrain forward.

@DTsea Rail system is overloaded, also most of the rail freight can only move at night since passenger trains take priority. This project is backed by two former Transport Ministers and many high profile companies.

The Swiss are running out of real estate area, they are practically forced to move underground.
