The Mindanao Railway Project Office is active in Sta Cruz, Davao del Sur to implement the railway project.
A property owner recently shared the following photo of MRP-TDD tags in Brgy. Zone II in Santa Cruz. It is worth noting that the tagging hadn't happened till July of last year. This coincided with tagging activity in other cities and municipalities affected by MRP-TDD Phase 1.
