Genting Group’s US$4.3 billion Las Vegas integrated resort development, Resorts World Las Vegas, has submitted plans to build a passenger station and tunnel connecting with the Las Vegas Convention Center campus.
The proposed tunnel project, utilizing SpaceX founder Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system, would transport passengers between RWLV and the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) via underground tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles in under two minutes. Musk’s LVCC Loop is already under construction as a means of rapidly transporting people between the Convention Center’s exhibition halls.
“The proposed Resorts World Las Vegas passenger station would provide convention guests and visitors with a rapid and seamless experience between the Las Vegas Convention Center and Resorts World Las Vegas,” said RWLV President Scott Sibella.
“Convention guests would no longer have to worry about long walks or gridlock traffic around the convention center – they could take the transportation system to Resorts World Las Vegas for lunch, meetings, or personal appointments, and be back to their conference or expo in minutes.
“This innovative transportation system is a perfect match for Resorts World Las Vegas as we design our resort to be at the forefront of progressive technology.”
The land-use application and design plans for the proposed RWLV tunnel and passenger station were submitted on 1 June with construction to begin this year if approved.
