Taking to Twitter, the billionaire SpaceX founder said his underground tunnel for the project "is nearly done" and will be ready on December 10.

It's unclear how Musk will achieve the top speeds of 760 miles (1,220 kilometers) per hour he has touted for a hyperloop tunnel, and the mode of transport that will be used there.

On Sunday night, Tesla, SpaceX, and Boring Company CEO Elon Musk tweeted "The first tunnel is nearly done", adding that the tunnel will open December 10.

Musk's venture, "The Boring Company", has been pushing the underground system as a futuristic concept that could radically speed transport within and between cities.

The public could get a chance to take a test ride on the Boring Company's futuristic, high-speed, underground traffic shortcut as soon as December 11.

The company would then offer free rides to the public the next day, he said, allowing passengers to travel as fast as 250 kilometres an hour.

The Tesla CEO took to Twitter to declare that its first high-speed transit tunnel is nearly complete and ready to run beneath Hawthorne in the Los Angeles area.

One of the proposed routes would take passengers from the United States capital - the District of Columbia, to NY in under 30 minutes.

The Boring Company also has a contract with the city of Chicago to build a loop to the city's O'Hare International Airport.

"I think real", Musk responded.
