Jan. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- Perthshire councillors have given the green light for the arguably first purpose-built platform for bungee jump in the United Kingdom. According to the BBC, a spot known as Garry Bridge that is located north of Pitlochry in the Perthshire highland, will see the erection of the structure.

Here aspiring bungee jumpers can plunge off the 131 ft (40 m) high bridge towards the frothing and meandering river below, only to be seized back by a rope having elastic properties, before their hitting the river surface. The operation is expected to begin by May this year.

However, the councillors in Kinross and Perth did not let it go ahead without imposing a few conditions, which include one point that jumping before 10 AM should be prohibited, and another that after dark jumps should be reduced to three per month. It is also implied here that if the project does not turn out a commercial success, the platform is required to removed completely to restore the bridge to the council.

Meanwhile, the firm behind the plans, the Highland Fling expects a surge of thrill seekers in the area following the start of the operations. A spokesman for Highland Fling, Murray Trail said that the area was obviously incredibly picturesque, which was one of the main reasons behind their choosing the site.

A car hire rental company serving both international and national tourists across the United Kingdom, Car-Hire-UK has welcomed the new development saying that it was a great step towards the promotion of adventure tourism in the country. The company added that they were providing cheap car rentals at the Dundee City, the nearest international air terminal to the proposed bungee jump spot.
