If you do them like they mined the limestone beneath Paris, then it might well be...

That being said, so far Paris hasn't disappeared into the ground... yet...



A  lot of American cities sit on earthquake fault lines. Such as LA. Yesterday LA has a earthquake. Imagine if this happened on a coastal American city that sits one fault line. Boston is built mostly on landfill so that will not work. Boston has some of the worst traffic in the U.S. NY is already flooding on a yearly basis. Sure this will work in SOME cities but this is not a magical elon invention. Consider land erosion coupled with fault line AND then drilling massive tunnels under the city that will transport hundreds of people at a time. Imagine if a large earthquake hit LA during rush hour after years of see erosion. Consider how many building would already fall and count the fact you have large waves coming in. Now you have thousands of people underground and using that as an evacuation route AND now all those buildings are weakened
