If the plot suggests they intersect, this may be because the lines have a certain width and points a certain area, but that their mathematical representations do not intersect. You could compute ...
Others users might be interested to know that I managed to solve this. In order to extend the lines outside of the polygon (problem a): # Save centre point co-ordinates separately A.x <- Centre@coords A.y <- Centre@coords Using the great answer posted here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/7741655/4312169 I applied the code: # Generate points ...
