Dear Mr Black

 

TfL Ref: FOI-2819-1718

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 05 January 2018 asking for
information about the A40 temporary speed limit east & west bound
Greenford to target roundabout.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm that we hold the information you require. You asked:

 

“Can you tell me why there is a temporary 30mph speed limit between target
and Greenford roundabout on A40 east and west bound and no works are
taking place it has been like this for over a month now with nothing
visible new. Taking place plus is it been enforced by the average speed
cameras too the police don’t even know why it’s there and have complained
too”

 

As part of a routine inspection of the A40 the central barrier was found
to have suffered some corrosion. To ensure that safety of all road users
is maintained we implemented a 30mph speed limit while we investigate the
least disruptive way and time to replace the central barriers. The 30mph
section is not enforced with the average speed cameras instead it uses
separate spot speed cameras.

 

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
