Jade’s Crossing is a footbridge in Detling, Kent, England. The footbridge crosses the A249, a major road which runs between Maidstone and Sheerness. The crossing is named after Jade Hobbs, who was killed attempting to cross the road in December 2000 at the age of eight. Her mother, Caroline, subsequently campaigned for the crossing to be built, and won a Special Award at the 2003 Pride of Britain Awards for her efforts.

A plaque beside this bridge reads: “Welcome to Jade’s Crossing. This footbridge is the result of a twenty year campaign by the People of Detling. It was constructed following the deaths of Jade Hobbs and her Grandmother Margaret Kuwertz who were both killed crossing this road on Saturday 16th December 2000.
For your safety, use this bridge to cross the busy A249.
