The tram line will connect Krasnogo Mayaka Street, Prazhskaya metro station, Kirovogradskaya Street and Varshavskoe Highway. Along Podolskikh Kursantov Street it will go through Biryulyovo West area and the northern part of Biryulyovo East.
“The line will have eight ground-level stops and one on a utility bridge. Their design is approved by the Moskomarkhitektura.
