Later on siesmic survey was carried out by OGDC (Oil and Gas Development Corporation) in 1990, parallal to the current alignment of tunnel. A reanalysis of this survey was done in 1997. Official ground breaking of the construction work happened in February 2000 (reference 2 below) and the completed tunnel was opened for traffic on June 10, 2003. It is estimated that Kohat tunnel reduces the travel time between Peshawar and Kohat by 40 minutes. The distance between Peshawar and Kohat is also reduced by approximately 25 kilometers. By 2010, Kohat tunnel is expected to carry a volume of 11279 vehicles every day.
Length of Kohat Tunnel is 1.885 kilometer.

How are the M4 Faisalabad - Multan Motorway works progressing? I've read it's supposed to be completed in the summer of 2012.

M1: Peshawar to Islamabad (Opened approx 2007)
M2: Islamabad to Lahore (Opened approx 2003)
M3: Lahore to Multan?

Some corrections:

M1: Peshawar to Islamabad (Opened approx 2007)
M2: Islamabad to Lahore (Opened approx 1997) - I've travelled on this one.
M3: Pindi Bhattian to Faisalabad (Opened approx 2003)

The M4 (Faisalabad to Multan) Motorway is currently U/C.

The planned motorway corridor from Faisalabad to Karachi will get a succession of numbers; M3, M4, M5, M6 and M7.

It depends on where you define as Europe
It can be Turkish Border (Bazargan, IR)
It can be the European side of Istanbul
It can be EU border at Edirne, TR
and you can also got to Georgia which is technically European via Armenia

These are more symbolic and they wanted to show that the road is an international road. And Pakistan has no standards in signs as you can see except the colours.

Seriously impressed with Pakistani Motorways and Highways. You guys have lots of scenic beauty all along these roads. Would love to visit Pakistan once And when I do, will definitely travel on the M2!

I have one question though. All these motorways pass through at least some villages, right? Isn't there problems with land acquisition for constructing them? How are they overcome?

We guys in India cannot build expressways (motorways) most of the time not because of lack of budget but because of problems with huge number of farmers protesting access control to these roads. Although a few thousand KMs of expressways are present, they had their own share of problems during construction and land acquisition. Makes me wonder!
