Perhaps you ought to rap those new concrete boxes with your knuckles to check that they aren't actually hollow plastic Potemkin boxes! The yellow ones I described were actually put into use in Sydney but the only sign of many of them nowadays is the round ring of the base, with the dynabolts still holding it to the island, the actual bollard having long since been swept away by "vehicle intrusion"!

I don't have a photo of one but I think this would a close equivalent in UK:

As you can see, the guides are fairly widely spaced adjacent to the actual stopping area of the tram.
