Looks like Elon Musk's Boring Company isn't waiting for Godda.
The company has completed the first section of tunnel underneath Los Angeles with Godda, a 1,200 ton machine named after a character in a Samuel Becket play.
if you're unfamiliar with the Boring Company It's Musk's grand plan to relieve traffic congestions using a series of underground tunnels.
Access points on the surface allow cars to drive onto elevators that descend into a network of tunnels.
The car slides into traffic on a sled and reaches speeds of 200 kilometers per hour or 124 miles per hour.
The man behind SpaceX and Tesla posted a video showing the steel skeleton of one of these car part elevators.
But the biggest challenge for the boring project?
That's permits to dig a tunnel network between locations like LAX, Culver City and Santa Monica.
He tweeted that he had promising conversations with the mayor of LA, but also mentioned that permits are harder than technology.
That's why this initial dig is happening at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, Los Angeles.
