This paper designs and analyzes the performance of a reliable communication scheme for the traffic control system built upon a wireless process control protocol, aiming at enhancing the robustness and timeliness of the safety critical control applications. Focusing on the slot-based predictable access and the grid topology of urban area road networks, the proposed scheme establishes one primary and secondary route from the controller to each other node and allocates the time slots accordingly.
