The new Master Plan designates the third metro line. It will pass from moskovsky Highway, through Gagarin Street, Partizanskaya Street, Verkhne-Kariernaya Street, then across the Samara River, along the Southern Highway to Dolotny Lane. The stations will be located near the intersection of Moskovsky Highway, Karl Marx and Gagarin Avenues, at the intersection of Partizanskaya and Aerodromnaya streets, as well as in the village of Tolevy.
