El hierro es básicamente un mineral, y no se utiliza en su forma metálica salvo en los puentes de hierro forjado construidos durante el siglo XIX. Los puentes que (en uso coloquial) se dicen de "hierro" son, en realidad, de acero. Opino que sería conveniente corregir esta categoría. Saludos, --Tano4595 22:26, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

[machine translation to English of Tano4595's comment: The iron is basically a mineral, and it is not used in its safe metallic form in the metal bridges forged constructed during century XIX. The bridges that (in colloquial use) are said of "iron" are, in fact, of steel. I think that he would be advisable to correct this category. Greetings]

I don't know about all bridges, but the first iron bridge, The Iron Bridge (opened 1781), is made from Cast iron. This category should be kept for bridges that are made of iron, but move brides made of steel to Category:Steel bridges. Thryduulf 16:43, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
