How to remove a redirect

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Delete a repository

I am trying to clean-up repository redirects among my repositories. In documentation it does say that "Right now, there is no way to edit or remove an existing redirect" but it also says under the same paragraph that, as a workaround, it is possible to "create a new repository with the same name ... delete this new repository".

When I try to do that, I get "You already have a repository with this name" and I cannot proceed to create a new repository with the same name as previously existing one with redirect.

Since the workaround seems to be broken at this time, is there another workaround for removing redirects?

You are correct that the workaround no longer works. I've updated the documentation. If you still need the redirects removed, contact support and ask them to remove the redirects for you.
