Delft Streetcar Construction - Laying Tracks on TU Delft campus

A post that shows some of the "tram" construction in Delft, Netherlands near the TU Delft campus. Just a few observations from the visit.
The base for the tracks was very minimal, similar to Portland streetcar construction.
The concrete blocks under the rails is supported with sand, hard to tell how deep here.
Depth of construction was likely limited because of the lack of heavy truck traffic. 
One more photo. During the two weeks I was there the slab was poured around the rails.
