        I agree. Living with the engineering works and pollution has not been nice. The extra congestion and incessant road works is quite maddening. Lower priced tickets for locals would be a nice way of saying thank you to residents.
        The absence of complaints from locals should not be taken as an automatic pat on the back for certain of the organisers as a job-well-done.

        "Given that people who work and/or live in London are having to endure years of engineering works and inconvenience on TFL in advance of the games, we should get them free!"

        "I believe local people in the Tower Hamlets and Newham areas should get priority status on the lower priced tickets having had to put up with the increased congestion and air pollution caused by the continual coming and going of heavy industrial lorries, not to mention the dust and debris from what seems to be the never ending building going on around these boroughs.
        I would be delighted if lower priced tickets say £20.00 or less could be made available to the 'locals' of these boroughs. Has anyone suggested a season ticket for the whole of the period of the games? I for one would be happy to arrange my holiday around the games if such a ticket were available."
