At the time of construction, the Cape Lambert Jetty was the longest jetty in the world, and one of the highest. The jetty measured in at 2.3km in length and was built 18m in height above sea level because of the prevalence of cyclones in the region. It was built using A-frame steel piles, which many remarked looked like matchsticks. For the high standard of work on the Cape Lambert Marine Facility, the Harbourworks Clough Joint Venture was awarded the prestigious Australian Federation of Construction Contractors Construction Achievement Award in 1973.
