The layout of the car park has also been improved to clearly mark the bays and pedestrian walkways.
Network Rail funded the £35,000 project which took five weeks to complete.
The station has seen other improvements, including LED lighting and new ticket machines .

Chris Jackson, Regional Director at Northern, said: “This investment is another example of the work being done by Northern to improve the journey experience of passengers and will make a significant difference to our customers.”
“We are working hard to make sure our stations are safe, accessible and welcoming places for customers and even small changes – like resurfacing – can make a big difference.
“Our A Better Way to Go campaign demonstrates the hard work that has taken place as we continue to transform rail travel in the north and I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved.”
Rory Kingdon, senior sponsor for Network Rail, said: “Our investment at Newton for Hyde station will help to make journeys safer and easier as we prepare to welcome more passengers back to the railway in the coming months.
“We’re working closely with Northern to put passengers first and improve journeys as part of the Great North Rail Project.”
