From the BBC:

More than 9,000 road traffic signs have been taken down in England in response to a drive to remove "unnecessary clutter" in cities and rural areas.

Ministers praised local authorities in London, Hampshire and Somerset for axing "confusing and ugly" signs and urged other councils to follow suit.

Around 8,000 of those signs come from London - 'repeaters' which are designed to reinforce no stopping or loading messages such as double red lines.
