Loads of bad sitelinks that need to go

Hi all,
We have a site that is a big brand, but 99% of our pages are behind a login and not open to search engines. Almost all of our search traffic comes by way of brand and directly to the homepage. We do have a few pages that are visible to search engines (A hundred thousand or so) and they follow the same convention, but differ by region. These types of pages are on the way out, but there is a lot of work between now and then to change them. For almost all regional SERPs there are these pages as sitelinks, they often refer to a different region entirely to the one that the user has searched for, so nothing good can come of these sitelinks. Rather than removing then 1 by 1 in w.tools sitelinks tool, can anyone think of a way to omit this ghastly incarnations?

As far as I know, there is only 1-by-1 removal. Are those "bad" sitelinks sending traffic?

Indeed they are. Such a shame there's no easy way.
