In contrast to this I want to show you some pictures of West Kazakhstan - a very remote country - which I made in 2009.

This is the road from Atyrau to Beyneu which was new made at that time



The road from Beyneu to Aktau in the Manghystau region



Manghystau has some very beautiful scenery. The road to the Sherkala, the lions mountain:



Local road in the Valley of the castles:





Now we crossed the Ustyurt plateau from the Caspian Sea to the Aral Sea. 600km of roads like this:



There is a military station where our papers were checked and we got access to one of the remotest spots on earth with the warning not to cross into Uzbekistan.



On the other end of the Ustyurt Plateau there is the Aral Sea or at least the remains of it, which has also some beautiful scenery











We crossed the Aral Sea and finally reached the Magistral M-32 Samara - Shymkent



Km 2000 at the M-32

The Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Serik Akhmetov launched the construction of the Astana-Temirtau motorway running to a length of 178 kilometres, within the framework of the development of the Centre-South highway route.

(...)

The length of the Astana-Temirtau motorway with four-lanes is 178 kilometres. The thickness of the concrete is 27 centimetres and construction is scheduled for completion in 2016.

The same highway Almaty-Astana in 2008, some other views. Highway had some bad parts as well, but they're not shown here.

About 150-200km from Almaty.

From last news I know that they started reconstruction of the highway between Temirtau and Astana, and turning it into a motorway. Following pictures are from that part of the highway as it was in 2008.

That's natural oasis in the middle of the steppe called Bektau-Ata, about 70km from Balkhash.
According to description in wikimapia, it elevates about 850-900m above surrounding steppe and has some caves, springs and lakes.

On the following pictures it looks like signs of some kind of construction work next to right shoulder of the road, and it stretches for quite long distance along the highway. Probably that was the beginning of motorway construction, which was completed in 2009. But I could be wrong.

That would be A17 from Shiderty to Pavlodar, which already is a fast road, partially 4-lanes and partial grade-separated. I'm not sure which number the Astana - Shiderty road has.

According to this map, Astana - Ereymentau - Shiderty road has number R-4.

Sweet find! Now I could locate the P-42 which is a spur off the P-3 to the Kabanbay Batyr Memorial Complex south of Astana. Road Trip!
