Level of service
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that level-of-service (quality of service or service quality) refers to: ‘The capacity and effectiveness of a system's functionality, as experienced by users, to provide the service for which it is intended. For a pedestrian street or a park, the service can comprise various factors such as active, interesting surroundings, path width, pavement surface, seating opportunities, obstacles, safety from traffic, cleanliness.’
Anticipate, react, recover; Resilient infrastructure systems, published by the National Infrastructure Commission in May 2020, defines levels of service as: ‘Standards or thresholds that are used to express the quality and/or availability of an infrastructure service that an infrastructure provider should aim for.’
