    2. A point of limitation or congestion. If you picture a bottle, the opening is narrower than the body of the bottle. If the opening was the same size as the body (like is common with cups and mugs), the liquid inside could be poured out extremely quickly, but since the opening narrows, it limits how quickly the liquid can be poured. So, a bottleneck is a point/spot/location that acts like the neck and opening of a bottle and limits movement/speed. A common usage is to describe a major interchange (where freeways/highways merge) as a bottleneck since they are the limiting factor for traffic speed. There is too much traffic for it to move through that point (bottleneck) at an unrestricted volume/pace.

"Service delivery" is obviously delivering some sort of service to someone. So the whole thing means "There is something that is causing a problem with service delivery, and we need to correct this".
