Left Turn Queue Box Parallel to Streetcar Tracks in The Netherlands

 One of the innovations that Portland has implemented from the Dutch experience is left turn queue boxes. The following is an example of one such effort where the bicycle lane has the elephant's feet marking and the vehicle minor street movement and the bicycle left turn movement. The reason for this treatment was that the bike lane was parallel to streetcar tracks. We came across this intersection on the way back from the beach at Monster a town in South Holland.

thanks for share! Wanted to find out if you can use the queue box at intersections that do not have bike lanes. Also, I'm assuming that the box would be infront of the thru lane and not the right turn pocket. Thanks
