The scissors ✂ shaped intersection (mix of acute and obtuse angles, rather than all 90 degree angles) looks similar to Ipley Cross, see #115523.

A follow up story from Cambridge News:
www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/cambridge-news/ridiculous-sign-trying-stop-cyclists-18084476

reported that: "The chairman of Coveney Parish Council, Barry Matthews, has today (Monday April 13) said that the sign has been set up on a highway without the necessary permission and will be removed in due course."
He also stressed that the sign did not represent the views of the parish council.
