Cheers for any info!
Aircraft have to roll right to the end and wait in a loop, then backtrack. This blocks it whilst aircraft are moving. It wasn't planned to be used for 23L landings except when absolutely necessary.
Similarly 05R is rarely used for takeoffs (from the other end of it) as aircraft need to travel down the runway then turn and hold in the loop until there is a gap for them to depart.
