Not sure I'd feel safe on the bit that hangs over!

I wonder if it has a section of glass floor?

If they were for cleaning the facade there would be no need for them to extend all the way out to the tip of the overhang.

My first thought was that they would be for projection screens or something. I can't imagine why they would need that many though. These 'rails' are making me very curious.

CCTV turned out really fantastic, yet another icon for China.
It really looks like something out of a science fiction movie, especially those three holes. I'm also very curious what the are for.

They will need them to extend to the tip of the overhang for any maintenance as well as cleaning the underside. Without this track you would have to construct a massive amount of complicated scaffolding just to get there.
