Large white van parked in road where cycle paths recently installed causing blockage to one lane and causing oncoming traffic to stray into cycle lane in order to give way to the obstructed lane.

This van continually parks here causing drivers to take evasive action so as to prevent others being held up. Often drifting into the recently constructed cycle lane to try and allow passage to the car/driver the van is obstructing. I’ve witnessed several near misses where the drivers oncoming and pulling into the cycle lane have unintentionally caused cyclists to take evasive action.
