Futuristic (or not) solution to traffic congestion

Three years ago, when I lived in Paris, I used to confront traffic congestion. It was horrible!!! Distances that usually took 10′ to pass, became hours at peak times, usually when I came back from work. I have awful memories about how much time I used to spend in my car, listenning podcasts to learn french.

Therefore, after my terrible experience, when I read ideas like this I feel so hopeful about how we could improve traffic circulation in congested cities.

A firm called “Boring Company” is studying a project to solve this situations. The solution is about  building multiple tunnels underground, accessible by a lift system. Each tunnel would have a railway which will transport each vehicle to a suitable point at a maximum speed of 200 km/h.

It is much more comprehensible when explained through images; therefore, the next video shows a simulation about how it could work.

Honestly, I wish we could use this kind of systems to avoid traffic congestions, that could help a lot of people to spend more time with family, friends and to balance work with social life.

  1. Very interesting, it will certainly have positive results in logistics. The serious question in what time can be implemented.
