Resorts World Las Vegas, the US $4.3 billion resort planned to open in summer 2021, received an enactment by the Clark County Commission necessary to move forward with constructing the resort’s passenger station and tunnel that will link to the Las Vegas Convention Center campus the transportation system being constructed by The Boring Company, on August 5. This new tunnel project is going to transport passengers between the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and the city’s newest integrated resort through underground tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles in under two minutes.
Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas stated that: “We are thrilled to receive approval from the County Commission to move forward with our proposed passenger station and tunnel and are eager to take the next steps in creating an innovative transportation solution for our convention guests and visitors.”
The decision comes after land-use application, and On June 1, design plans were submitted for the tunnel and passenger station to the Board of County Commissioners. Marking an important milestone, the decision moves the landmark project into the next step of the permitting process. Construction is predicted to begin by the end of 2020.
Direct access to the heart of the resort’s retail, dining and nightlife offerings, as well as convenient access to the Las Vegas Strip will be the offerings of the Resorts World Las Vegas passenger station. Supplementary plans have been floated that would extend the tunnel through the strip and McCarran Airport.
