The only signage on autoroute with voie pour vehicules lents is the start of a new crawler lane in English and a sign indicating 'vehicules lents'. There is no indication of a maximum speed for that lane, beyond at 130 you may come up behind a truck very quickly, there is no indication that the standard keep to the right unless overtaking doesn't apply. The offside (3rd) lane will have a minimum speed, usually 100, posted. At the top the vehicules lents lane becomes lane 1 and lanes 2 and 3 become lane 2.
