What will it be like commuting in Manchester during Peak hours? City centre to Ashton-Under-Lyne?

I have just got offered an interview for a job in Ashton-Under-Lyne, will be living close to the city center. 

Does anyone know what the typical commute of 8.3 miles to work will be like? My working hours are 9-6 Monday to Friday. I have just heard that Manchester city centre can be tricky. 

If anyone knows a good estimate or range of how long it takes or if you live in Manchester yourself please let me know, thanks!

    My son lived there, every few yards in the centre are traffic lights, never seen so many in a small area.

    Traffic on the Mancunian Way can be awful.
