The progression of the ravine, more than 10 meters deep, was due to soil erosion and heavy rainfall in recent months in the province.

In the town of Salucunda, Cuilo municipality, the problem is more serious: more than 20 trucks with food and fuel have been stranded since December 31, due to a degradation of about 26 kilometers on the same road.

EN 225 is currently used by drivers and mainly truckers to transport food, fuel and passengers from Luanda to the east of the country and / or vice versa.
