In the article, on the basis of extensive theoretical and experimental research carried out, innovative geotechnology for repair of culverts is presented, which provides an improvement in the conditions for interaction between the body of the structure and the soil massif with increasing technogenic impacts. The analysis of the technical condition of the culvert transport and engineering structures under special operating conditions is given. Factors determining their premature emergency condition and interfering with stable functioning under increasing loads and impacts have been studied. On the basis of many years of experimental and theoretical and experimental design work, geotechnology «Saturn» has been proposed, suitable for repairing all types of culverts on railroads and highways, engineering infrastructure facilities, and especially for repair and reconstruction of pipes under conditions of a constant intensive watercourse with nonstandard (atypical) constructive solutions, as well as located in hard-to-reach and difficult for the organization of the construction site sections of the route. The experience of successful application of the developed technology "Saturn" on the railroad during the repair and reconstruction of long-maintained culverts of stone and concrete pipes under the conditions of a constant intensive watercourse and at water disposal facilities during repair of deep tunnels without their decommissioning is described.
