The 11 mile 5000 Volt electric fence surrounding the Olympic site is reported as costing £80 million.
11 * 1 miles = 11 * 1.609344 kilometres = 17702.784 metre
Cost per metre = 80000000 / 17702.784 = £ 4519
or for those of you who work in imperial units the Cost per foot = £ 1377
Now that seems excessive to me, the fence of course can be circumvented by purchasing a ticket.
Other aspects of Olympic security appear to be ineffective as this “test” has proven.
He told the paper he had become concerned after noticing he was only searched by security when he entered the site in the mornings, and that he could enter and exit the grounds in his digger during the day without further checks.

The Sun of course is a Murdoch production and Murdoch is a Likudist friend of Israel, this article proves that it has been possible to easily circumvent security at the site and thus possible that someone might have planted something in advance.
Estimated cost of approx 36m of fence shown = £ 162684 value for money ?
