You asked

Dear TFL, From Sunday 09/09/18 a new speed limit will be in place on A40 between target RB and Greenford. It used to be 50mph but due to a problem with central barriers it was changed to 30mph ( temporary). Now it’ll be changed again to 40mph. Most likely permanently Could you please let me know if that’s the case?
