I doubt there is even 140 kilometers of dual carriageway.

You might get there if you count every single road with grade separations in the entire country (probably for 95% around Bishkek). But as far as I know, you won't find a single expressway type of route in Kyrgyzstan. The principal towns of the country are separated by high mountain passes. Demand for quick connections between them is rather low.

Even if the demand is high, the Kyrgyz budget is not large enough to fund such a massive national Motorway.

True. Though for countries with a low budget forms of foreign aid might always help to build a road network suit for economical development. And in fact, Kyrgyzstan has received substantial aid in the past decade or so. The Irkeshtam and Torugart pass routes are now tarmac routes in a good state, thanks to aid received from China.

Not without self-interest of course, since China wants to have good connections to the mineral-rich countries west of the Pamirs.

The trip from the Torugart pass to Bishkek. Atmospheric conditions on the first part of the route (up to Naryn) were poor, which did not make for good photos, but I still thought I'd share them.

Final 60 kilometers before the Torugart pass are still dirt roads, but the upgrade to full tarmac is currently being worked upon and should be ready by 2015.

That road is part of E-route E007, not to be confused with E07 which is part of my commute .

Anyway, any person who knows the quiz site Sporcle will know Kyrgyzstan, as this country is a running gag there. Really beautiful country BTW.

Kyrgyzstan's next north-south highway expected to boost economy

Construction began at the end of March 2014 on the 433km highway, designed to connect Balykchi, Issyk-Kul Province, to Jalal-Abad city.

The government expects the project to cost US $850m (52.3 billion KGS), and for construction to be completed at the end of 2018.

Is it going to be a motorway or just a good quality highway?

$ 850 million for 443 kilometers of road in mountainous terrain is almost definitely a two-lane road. Still, it's a very large investment for a country like Kyrgyzstan.

Indeed.....
But whatever, if the road is of good quality and well maintained, I think it's going to be enough for a country like Kyrgyzstan.
Apart from that, I also think that a really needed investment would be a road between Bishkek and the Chinese border.....what do you think?

There is lots of Chinese investments in both major crossings between Kyrgyzstan and China. You have the Torugart route via Naryn. Scroll a few posts up and you will see how they are improving that route. North of Naryn, no current investments but the road is in reasonable shape. The other route to China is via the Irkeshtam pass. There, too, the route is being steadily improved with Chinese money. Here a few pictures from a travel blog.

Looking at streetview, it seems like they don't use the Soviet road numbering system that maps use. There's only a handful of signs that have these numbers on. Everything else is numberless.

Here's some guesses, based on the signs I've found.

ЗМ-01: M39 KAZ-KAZ, but bypassing Bishkek
ЗМ-02: M41
ЗМ-07: Bishkek - Issyk Kul
ЗМ-09: Bishkek - Manas Airport
ЗМ-16 : A367
М-001: M39 through Bishkek

They like their grand entrances to roads - this one off the M41 ЗМ-02 is rather cool.
