mow over them for a year or so , that should kill them , works for the much more rampant heliconia pssiticorum .
Or pay someone to dig them up .
Or use herbicide as a last resort ..
Have you tried offering them on a buy swap sell noticeboard or facebook group ?

Thanks Trikus for taking the time to reply. Can't afford to pay someone to dig them up. Have chainsawed them to ground level, then sprayed , then covered in black plastic but they continue to grow and lift the plastic. Am at wits end. Not accessible with a bob cat or big digging devices and too expensive for me anyway. Worst thing I've ever planted, very scruffy when growing and spreading. 5x5 metre area. Any other suggestions, please.

bet you are talking about Shell Ginger and not Cardamon.. only thing I can suggest is sharpen up a cane knife and chop down continuously every few week for a few years , stems make great paths if you lay them straight .. there is NO easy way
I have a patch about the same size
