NZAA airport question

why does Auckland airport runway say

23L
when there is just 1 runway, why cant it just be runway 23?
now that I see it…pls fix that

That’s how it is in real life, so why should it be fixed?

That is the name of the runway in real life, why should it be changed?




And keeps going…

There will be a 23R in a couple of years, there is another runway being built. But for now it’s called ‘23L/05R’

This how it is in real life.

I suggest you do a little more research before reporting an issue please.

Thanks!
