New Chennai to Coimbatore 'Day' Duronto

This was just announced in the new budget! Anybody have any idea of just how fast the tracks on that route will let it go at? I heard the trains themselves are designed to do something like 160 km/h, as they have lighter bogies etc.

Anyone have any ideas what the timetabled journey time might be?

They will be operational after April 1. So no exact date as of now. Speeds usually are between 80 to 100.
