Knutsford Guardian said:STYAL Railway Station car park has been given makeover as part of a £650,000 investment by Northern.
The rail operator has laid more than 12,035 square metres of tarmac – about the size of 46 tennis courts – as part of the improvement works and has given passengers a ‘Better Way to Go’.
Northern’s campaign – ‘A Better Way to Go’ - highlights the work being done by the train operator to improve its stations for passengers.
The £650,000 project was funded by Network Rail and has seen Styal Station, along with Windermere, Hyde North, Reddish North, Newton for Hyde, Disley, Dent, Castleton, Grange Over Sands and Meadowhall station car parks given a facelift.

That sounds good but as of last Monday Northern suspended all services to Styal as part of their COVID timetable, while Styal has no other public transport and Northern aren't providing any replacement buses. There isn't even a line in the article which mentions the suspension of service.
Train information at Styal between 0200 and 0159 on 25/01/2021. From Realtime Trains, an independent source of train running info for Great Britain.
So if anyone's parking in Styal station car park, they won't be catching a train.
It's also lazy for Newsquest to not bother to update the article to have any local relevance. I don't think people in Cheshire care about car parking at Windermere or Meadowhall stations!
