The nearest border to Tashkent wasn't open to foreign vehicles so we had to drive further to south west for nearly 100km

Thanks.

Generally it was smooth. Most roads were tarmac although many of them were a bit old and not very well maintained. People were nice and we felt safe to travel there. Be careful of police (just like in other central asia countries, they are everywhere), especially when the speed limit drops to 50kph when you approach a village or town and some mountainous areas. We were stopped so many times! And we were asked for bribes at the border when leaving Kazakhstan. Fortunately we managed to finish the trip without paying any fine or bribes.

Are they really building a motorway between Europe and China via Russia and Kazakhstan?

I don't think they actually build a motorway west of Kyzylorda. But I think Almaty - Kyzylorda will be a motorway, based on recent Google Earth imagery which shows a 4-lane dual carriageway with interchanges under construction at various locations.
