250 kph with minimum curve readjustment to fit high speed train would be more cost effective though

Yes, even that is likely possible. Tilting trains might also be an option to go up to 250/h on the stretches with most of the narrower curves. I already was surprised by the progress Malaysia made in a few years on railway tracks. I mean, look at other countries with similar incomes. In Latin America most countries will look with envy. Thailand same. Only China is more advanced in this sense but they have a vast amount of land with few hills and high densities, not to underestimate 1435mm. With the exception of the Borneo part the technology and reach by 2020 is barely less than say the Netherlands (where most trains go at a slow pace and some important towns are left without railways). Only the complexity and utilisation is different.
