The road in Volgograd Oblast

The Russian route M6 (or Р22, also known as the Caspian Highway) is a major trunk road that links Moscow to the Caspian Sea. The road runs concurrent with route M4 from Moscow to Stupino, then branches off south of Stupino and goes southeast across Ryazan Oblast, Tambov Oblast, Voronezh Oblast, and Volgograd Oblast, running along the right bank of the Volga River through Volgograd before terminating at Astrakhan. Its length is 1381 kilometers. The entire route is part of the European route E119, and the stretch between Volgograd and Astrakhan is part of the European route E40. In 2018, the northern terminus will be moved to the M4 south of Stupino.
