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.
It's ЭM (EM in our script). Too bad they have removed Soviet M41, but it is also true they may want to use their own numbering.

I personally believe that it is better in the longer run to have one national road numbering system based on uniform standards than to retain all sorts of pre-independence legacy numbers. As much as it's fun that you still have a few road numbers in Vietnam and Laos that are legacy French Routes Imperiales, it is not particularly helpful for the motorist. Anyway, with road numbers hardly being signposted throughout Kyrgyzstan, the priority may still have to be actually signposting something to aid the motorist...

As regards grand entrances: I believe that this is thanks to the choice to have roads bypass smaller villages. Good for these villages when you compare it to rural villages on national roads elsewhere on the planet, but it probably triggered this type of "hey don't forget that we're still there" constructs.

It makes you wonder what 'ЭM' stands for.

Road sponsored by the manufacturer of post-its? ;-)

I hope road numbers come up more frequently as signs get replaced. However I miss E routes, here they could have signed E40, E125 and E010; and the last one could have been signed here.

Then that first sign would feature nine route numbers : EM-01, EM-07, EM-09, M-001, E40, E125, E010, AH5 and AH61. Anyway, in Spain we have signs with way more numbers signed.

Central Asia is an area where E-routes and AH-routes overlap. Where two sister organisations at the UN manage the systems, allowing the overlap was a pretty dumb move if you ask me. I am agnostic as to which system should prevail in Central Asia, but signposting something would be a good thing to do now.

There should be E-system all over the world or at least in whole continental Euro-Asia region. (Islands like GB or Japan can have own system if they wish)

I don't think we really need a single road number from Lisbon to Shangai. Even in Europe, E-numbers are almost never used in real life.

It would be Brest, surely? I know the E80 and AH5 are concurrent in western Turkey, but AH5 is concurrent with E60 from Poti to China... :P

I've drawn a map of the known routes here:
