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!
Thanks for you feed back on Pak Motorways. Indeed Pak. motorways are a wonder to travel on both in comfort, safety, scenic views and amazingly fresh food 24/7 along with the usual KFC, Subway and pizzas etc. Surprisingly the facilities are world class and in some ways even better than other parts of the world in my opinion....I am sure some would differ but I have my reasons. I do hope you get to drive or ride on these roads for fun and enjoy watching lush and rich farm life and the natural beauty of salt range (believe to be the 2nd or third largest salt mines) mountains to seeing Hindu kush on one side and Himalayas on the other side. I have traveled many of times on these M.Ways and have even enjoyed the full night at a rest area just as the mountain range start.....and boy what a peaceful view it was other than mosquito bites.
With all this gloating remarks about Pak. Motorways and even the highways since I have traveled in many direction in Pakistan and have been impressed with upgrades to most highways the motorway police managing them......I would like Pakistan to make some head ways with economy and other issues like India has. In regards to land acquisition for such projects, Pakistan's law allows the Govt. to secure such land if it is in the best interest of masses and other than city areas where it may delay the project but does not get canceled as long as the Govt. is serious about building it....case in point Lahore Ring Road project.
Hope I have answered your questions and do hope you get to visit Pak. soon since its people are kind and hospitable along with its natural beauty.

Is there an opening date for M4 Faisalabad - Multan? I believe it should be finished around now.

Lol, it has hardly started.

There is usually a 3-5 yr delay from when a politician says the project has started (actually, he says "its a gift to the nation" even though it is being built by govt) and the time it actually starts (if at all).

Will take at least 3 yrs to finish if not longer.

Is this motorway already opened to traffic?
That motorway is NOT part of the national motorway program and have been shelved after the Musharraf govt. lost elections.

If I am not wrong its the view of Korakoram highway from Chinese side, not the Pakistani side.
