Because (for example) extending the present regio express to Broc would require more than a simple re-gauging. It would require building long platforms not only in Broc station but also at the intermediate stops between there and Bulle. In many cases there isn't the space for this so land would have to be acquired and the impact would be huge.
The intermediate stations will be closed. Only Broc, and Broc Fabrique
will remain.

. Surely a simple re-gauging plus change of electrification would be sufficient to save the freight service, and a local passenger service could be provided with a suitable short train such as a GTW, all within the present right of way.
You would then need to provide a seperate train for this shuttle.
Adding a standard train to the current roster that serves the (Bern) -
Fribourg - Bulle services is more efficient.

It's part of a complete redesign of the local transport network.
