That drop off at the end is massive, plus the fact it doesn't have any sort of EMAS is a joke IMO. It doesn't have a true EMAS but it does have a 240m overrun area which is the highest recommendation from ICAO. If you overrun a 2860m runway plus another 240m, the design isn't an issue at that point.
