Leading Article: Not right up your street?

But traditionalists, for whom Caroline Street is the only destination after a night out on town, need not fear.

It is going to take a lot more than pounds 200,000 spent on some fancy paving and lighting to transform Cardiff's chip alley into a boulevard des pommes frites. But at least you will be able to see what you are stepping in.
